Moore Is More

A fabulous day trip for Forest Hills residents. A half hour from here by car (big schlep by subway), the New York Botanical Gardens is staging an outdoor sculpture exhibition featuring 20 pieces by Henry Moore.

Moore in America: Monumental Sculpture
at The New York Botanical Garden

May 24 – November 2, 2008

Experience the largest outdoor exhibition of Henry Moore’s sculpture ever presented in a single venue in America. The collection of 20 major pieces will be positioned throughout the Garden’s 250 acres and among its 50 gardens and plant collections, highlighting the inspiration that Moore took from nature and his enjoyment of seeing his works in a landscape setting. It will be a truly breathtaking show.

At this point, the show is in its advanced-notice phase, with alerts being sent that tickets will be available soon and you can sign up to be notified when they do go on sale. I’m already planning my day there, which will include the gardens and then Arthur Ave. for lunch.

    This post reminds me of those wonderful Sunday Outing columns that the Times used to run — a doable trip with a little background, and a tip or two to get the most out of the adventure. While there is always a ton of available things to do in and around NYC, it is often hard to distill the information, and then in time to take advantage of it. A little fresh air, a change of scenery, a little culture . . . please keep them coming.
