Desert Botanical Garden: The Chihuly Exhibit

The Desert Botanical Gardens is one of the world's finest and most diverse collections of succulent plants, including rare, threatened, and endangered species. Its 145 acres has more than 50,000 plants.

Dale Chihuly is a glass sculptor internationally known for his innovative glass creations; his work is immediately recognizable for its grand scale and vibrant colors.

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.
(The giant insects are from a separate exhibition at the Desert Botanical Gardens)
