The Brooklyn Botanic Garden will offer waived admission to Open House New York guests throughout OHNY Weekend. On Saturday, October 22, BBG's garden guides will lead two tours of the For the Birds exhibition. During the tours, some of the artists and architects who contributed to the exhibition will also be on-site to speak about their work.

Ending during OHNY Weekend on October 23, For the Birds is a multidisciplinary exhibition and program series inspired by the Garden’s resident birds. For the Birds is centered around a Garden-wide outdoor exhibition of dozens of site-specific birdhouses created by artists of international renown. Inspired by bird species in residence at Brooklyn Botanic Garden, each birdhouse provides an opportunity to learn more about birds and their habitats through the eyes of artists working with a variety of materials and points of view.
