The New York Botanical Gardens is the perfect host for this beautiful exhibition of more than 20 historical oils from this iconic artistic movement.
 
American Impressionism flourished at the turn of the 20th century as a result of the widespread success of the movement in France. Although it’s been over a century, works from American Impressionism’s greatest champions come to life again at The New York Botanical Gardens. Visitors will have the distinct pleasure of viewing the American garden in paint and in life — a beautiful juxtaposition. Among the notable artists included are Chase, Hassam, and Sargent.
 
Via the event webpage: “Throughout the Garden, celebrate the spirit of America and NYBG’s 125th Anniversary with an exciting array of programs showcasing many aspects of American culture from this era, which coincided with NYBG’s founding. Enjoy jazz and tap performances, a lively evening concert series, lectures and symposia, film screenings of popular entertainment acts, a poetry walk, and art activities for adults and children; special Opening Weekend events kick off the festivities.”
