Tomato Travels – Part 6, New York, New York

By Kira Hamman

If you live in New York, I hope you are visiting the New York Botanical Garden frequently.

What a place!

In addition to all the amazing gardens they grow and all the fascinating classes they offer, they have a number of galleries featuring garden-oriented art. How cool is that?

But best of all, beginning on August 30 one of these galleries will host “Portraits of Historic Tomato Varieties from the Gardens of Amy Goldman,” an exhibition of photographs by Victor Schranger.

For those who don’t already know, Amy Goldman is an artist, gardener, and heirloom advocate whose gardens in upstate New York are apparently a sight to behold. Goldman’s new book, The Heirloom Tomato, is set to come out August 5 (which, coincidentally I suppose, is the birthday of my late tomato-adoring grandmother), and this exhibition is timed to coincide with that.

If you’re going to be in New York this fall, check it out! If not, you can at least put the book on your Christmas list.
