Highlighting the trip is the Georgia O’Keeffe "Visions of Hawai‘I" Exhibit at the New York Botanical Garden. This collection reveals "O’Keeffe’s… lifelong affection for the Islands’ rugged topography, dramatic landscapes, and exotic plants." One of Ms. O’Keeffe favorite places to capture “the remarkable flora and ecological complexity of Hawai‘i” during her 1939 stay was at Kahuna Garden in Hana, Maui. Complementing the painting exhibit will be a collection of plants grown by NTBG staff in Hawaii. NTBG’s Chipper Wichman (President, Director and CEO) and Mike DeMotta, Director of Living Collections and Horticulture advised on the exhibit.
