“Welcome to 70 degrees,” the greeter said as we entered the New York Botanical Gardens’ conservatory to tour its orchid show. We peeled off our coats, hats, gloves and scarves, eager to enter the world of Key West, the theme of this year’s exhibit.
Earlier in the day, I’d met my friend Margaret at the Guggenheim to take in the Carrie Mae Weems photography and video exhibit. Her powerful photographs combine the personal and political and are accompanied by her prose poems. I always love walking around this famous Frank Lloyd Wright designed museum.
Excellent exhibits; try to go if you’re in the NY area.
