New York’s Favorite Orchid Night Out Returns!

Kwong’s design for The Orchid Show’s 20th year is inspired by her ancestral connections to nature and presents a meditative and captivating design of orchids enfolded into rolling mountains throughout the historic Enid A. Haupt Conservatory. Visiting the exhibition in the evening, with a cocktail at hand, underneath the twinkle of the Conservatory, provides a picture perfect evening of beauty.
