Those of us that live in Arizona are blessed by the serenity and beauty of the desert. One of our greatest treasures is the Desert Botanical Gardens, which recently showcased an amazing presentation of Dale Chihuly’s glass art amidst the backdrop of the gorgeous desert.
Dale Chihuly is known for his innovative glass sculptures, and his work is immediately recognizable for its grand scale and vibrant colors. You might recognize his work which adorns the ceiling at the Bellagio Hotel in Sin City. Chihuly’s spectacular creations are found in more than 200 museums worldwide including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, London’s Victoria and Albert Museum and the Smithsonian American Art Museum. Garden exhibitions of his work have been mounted at the New York Botanical Garden, Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden, Atlanta Botanical Garden, Missouri Botanical Garden, Phipps Conservatory and the Royal Botanical Gardens at Kew. This is Chihuly’s first exhibition in an outdoor desert environment.
Please enjoy the beauty!
