The New York Botanical Garden Announces Spanish Paradise: Gardens Of The Alhamba

A special, three-part exhibition celebrating the legendary Islamic palace and fortress in Granada, Spain, on view from May 21–August 21, 2011.

This unprecedented exhibition explores the collaboration of sublime nature and dramatic design that created an earthly paradise. Read the works of Federico García Lorca as you stroll the gardens surrounding the Enid A. Haupt Conservatory, enjoy flamenco each weekend, and discover the food and culture of Spain. A complementary exhibition in the LuEsther T. Mertz Library, Historical Views: Tourists at the Alhambra, features rare prints, historical photographs, watercolor drawings, and objects from the rich collections of the Hispanic Society of America, immersing visitors in the Alhambra’s history and design.
