Chihuly Exhibition at Botanical Gardens in Denver, CO

We visited the Botanical Gardens in Denver, CO on a hot, dry day. We found relief at the Café next to a beautiful pond. Outside tables rested under a huge shade tree. I bought an iced tea, which was very good.

The pond was filled with glass sculptures in the Chihuly Exhibit. Dale Chihuly is known for revolutionizing the Studio Glass movement that changed people’s perceptions about glass creations. People have begun to see glass works as art not craft. He uses the team approach for blowing glass.

We discovered another pond filled with Chihuly’s large floating bulbs. On one side was a boat filled with more glass designs and colors. This is a beautiful, unique exhibit with many displays throughout the Botanical Gardens!
