blankIn presenting the artistic world of Roy Lichtenstein: Monet’s Garden Goes Pop! at Selby Gardens’ Downtown Sarasota campus, there is an intention for visitors to experience the grounds and exhibit using all of their five senses. To add to the sights and senses of the horticultural and art displays of the exhibition, sounds and visually palpable experiences created by a variety of cultural performances will add to the sensory experience throughout the five month exhibit. Each evening performance will include full access to the Gardens, light refreshments, wine, and beer.

*The Tropical Conservatory and Museum of Botany & the Arts are open 6 to 7 p.m. during Lichtenstein Nights
