A plant collector and founder of a fine-arts touring company, Marjorie G. Rosen sold hanging garden baskets for many years through Munder-Skiles Garden Furniture. As an experienced horticulturalist, Marjorie G. Rosen has served the New York Botanic Garden (NYBG) as chair of the Horticultural Committee since 2007.

A museum dedicated to conservation and research, the NYBG dates back to 1891. Listed as a National Historic Landmark, the botanical gardens encompass a spectacular array of plants in its numerous collections. The NYBG also hosts a variety of artistic events.

Upcoming events at the gardens include an exhibition titled Georgia O’Keeffe: Visions of Hawai’i. The exhibition in the LuEsther T. Mertz Library Art Gallery will feature 20 of O’Keeffe’s paintings from time she spent working for the Hawaiian Pineapple Company. It will also include a rich display of Hawaiian flora at the Enid A. Haupt Conservatory.

After its May opening, Visions of Hawai’i will run through Sunday, October 28, 2018.
