We will enjoy a guided tour of The Orchid Show, an exhibition now in its 18th year, which will

horticultural spectacle not to be missed! Additionally, we will have a guided walking Garden
Highlights tour, focusing on what is in peak. We will conclude our day with a wonderful dining
experience on-site at the New York Botanical Garden.

Established in 1891, The New York Botanical Garden (NYBG) is distinguished by the beauty of its landscape,
collections, and gardens, and the scope and excellence of its programs in horticulture, education, and science.
NYBG was inspired by an 1888 visit that eminent botanists Nathaniel Lord Britton and his wife, Elizabeth, took to the
Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, near London. The Brittons believed New York should have a great botanical garden to
advance public understanding of plants, be a repository of rare and valuable specimens, and lead original research
in botanical science. Because of its picturesque terrain, freshwater Bronx River, rock-cut gorge, and 50 acres of old-
growth forest, the Garden was sited on the northern half of Bronx Park.

Today, the 250-acre Garden—the largest in any city in the United States—is a National Historic Landmark.
NYBG encompasses 50 specialty gardens and collections comprising more than one million plants, the Nolen
Greenhouses for Living Collections, and the Enid A. Haupt Conservatory, the nation’s preeminent Victorian-style
glasshouse. Highlights include the award-winning Peggy Rockefeller Rose Garden, considered among the world’s
most sustainable rose gardens; the Native Plant Garden, celebrating the diversity of northeastern North American
plants; and 30,000 distinguished trees, many more than 200 years old.

We will depart from the Sears rear parking lot on Route 1 South
in New Brunswick at 7:45 a.m. sharp and will return by 4:30 p.m.

The Barnes Foundation: $95 per OLLI-RU member, $105 per non-member

A member is an individual who has taken an OLLI-RU course within
the last three years including spring 2020.

* Registration for trips are by mail only. Please see Travel Registration form on page 31.

We will experience a docent-led tour of the Barnes, which focuses on Dr. Barnes and how he
started his collection as well as how the artwork is arranged and highlights throughout the
galleries. After the tour, we can spend some time on our own focusing on areas of our choice.
Admission also includes the following exhibition: “Marie Cuttoli: The Modern Thread from Miro
to Man Ray.” After admiring various collections, we will enjoy a boxed lunch at the Barnes.

Philadelphia art collector Albert C. Barnes (1872–1951) chartered the Barnes Foundation in 1922 to teach people
from all walks of life how to look at art. Over three decades, he collected some of the world’s most important
impressionist, post-impressionist, and modern paintings, including works by Renoir, Cézanne, Matisse, and Picasso.
He displayed them alongside African masks, native American jewelry, Greek antiquities, and decorative metalwork.
Dr. Barnes believed passionately that art—like people—should not be segregated.

We will depart from the Sears rear parking lot on Route 1 South 29
in New Brunswick at 8:00 a.m. and will return by 4:30 p.m.
