It's Spring, and art is blossoming at the New York Botanical Garden, which has painstakingly recreated the lush gardens of Monet's Giverny. Also this week: the Whitney Museum Independent Study Program engages in "Creative Destruction," Maria José Arjona instructs on how to kiss, and surrealist Daniel Merriam presents watercolors of "The Greatest Show on Earth." There's even an Open Studios on Governors Island. So catch the next ferry, and check out this week's art scene.
