MSG Unveils "Garden 366" Exhibit Commemorating Historic Events

"Garden 366" features one memorable moment at MSG for every day of the year
MSG President & CEO Hank Ratner “gave a tour of the new ‘Garden 366’ display on Friday that rings the Madison Concourse,” according to Marc Berman of the N.Y. POST. The exhibit “touts one thrilling moment in Garden history for every day of the calendar year -- including Feb. 29.” The Knicks, NHL Rangers, college and high school basketball, wrestling, tennis and boxing “get their share of days.” Also “part of the 366-piece ensemble are historical music concerts, political moments and miscellaneous events, such as Pope John Paul II’s visit on Oct. 3, 1979.” The “most offbeat selection is Feb. 6, 1887, when Buffalo Bill’s first Wild West exhibition was chosen.” The “trend in new arenas is housing a Hall-of-Fame room to commemorate a team’s history.” Ratner said that “that idea wasn’t good enough.” In addition to the display, 20 days are “spotlighted in a special ‘20 Defining Moments’ exhibit on the same floor -- each getting its own window-enclosed display” containing “memorabilia, artifacts and photos.” Only 10 of the 20 window displays are “ready for this season, including Marilyn Monroe singing ‘Happy Birthday’ at a Democratic fundraiser to John F. Kennedy -- May 19, 1962.” The other 10 moments “will be done for next season but placed on an upstairs floor, ‘The Garden Concourse’” (N.Y. POST, 11/11).
