I’ve been to see this garden several times, but seeing Chihuly at Atlanta Botanical Garden will remain an awe inspiring experience for a long time. I couldn’t speak. I think I probably would have cried if I had given myself time. I eagerly ran/walk from piece to piece and each time I turned around the light would hit the glass another way and I would be struck by the beauty. Again and again.
The Garden website describes, “Internationally acclaimed artist, Dale Chihuly, returns to the Garden for an encore exhibition of his spectacular works of art, presented in a setting that has doubled in size since his blockbuster show here in 2004.
Chihuly in the Garden includes 19 installation sites all set amongst the Garden’s natural beauty. The kaleidoscopic colors of the art for which the artist has become so famous may also be experienced in a different light – at night when the Garden offers extended hours.”

While these images are beautiful, can you imagine seeing them in person? It was recently announced that New York Botanical Garden will be hosting a Chihuly exhibition in 2017. After visiting Atlanta Botanical Garden it really does have me planning a visit to see the NYBG exhibit.
What beautiful color combinations…
