Taiwanese Orchids on Display This Weekend at Queens Botanical Garden

It's a "World of Orchids" in Queens this weekend.

The Queens Botanical Garden is where you can find  more than 250 pots containing Taiwanese orchids, and there are numerous works of art by contemporary artists. 

The program's manager says the exhibit is a good example of how culture is celebrated every day at the Garden, which tries to showcase more than pretty blooms.

"We have two days of robust programing, collaborative dance perfromances, movie screenings, instlation art and what better way to ceelbrate then here at the garden with flowers? So we welcome them here with open arms," says Queens Botanical Garden Programs Manager Regina Forlenza.

The exhibt runs until 5 p.m. Sunday and is included with admission to the garden.
