“Kiku: The Art of the Japanese Garden”
Time Out says
Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that events are still happening.
New Yorkers are singularly focused on leaves this time of year, but in Japan, fall is chrysanthemum-appreciation season. Gawk at multicolored blossoms trained to grow into a bridge, cascade or wall formation at this three-week display, and single stems that have been manipulated to produce hundreds of flowers at once. The closing weekend features a special bonsai exhibit (Oct 26, 27) and poetry reading with Jane Hirschfield (Oct 27 at 2pm); throughout the month you can also catch traditional Japanese taiko drumming (Sat, Sun 1, 3pm) and sip sake at a pop-up restaurant (Fri–Sun).
