New York Botanical Garden Events
Immerse yourself in lush gardens and vibrant art of Roberto Burle Marx who was a force of nature in Brazil—through his bold landscapes, vibrant art, and passionate commitment to plant conservation. His powerful modernist vision produced thousands of gardens and landscapes, including the famous curving mosaic walkways at Copacabana Beach in Rio and rooftop garden at Banco Safra in São Paulo. Feel his artistic energy and love of plants during Garden-wide exhibition of lush gardens; paintings, drawings, and textiles; and the sights and sounds of Brazil that inspired his life and work.
