I first became aware of Dale Chihuly's stunning glass art when he had an exhibit a few years ago at the St. Louis Botanical Garden. For the first time in my life I can honestly say I was completely memerized by an artist's work. His use of color, shape and the way he blended his art in with the environment truly took my breath away. Once you see a Chihuly piece, you will recognize his work anywhere. I have waited patiently for him to have another exhibit within driving distance of my home, this year he has two!
Two weeks ago, on our way home from a few days in Traverse City, we stopped at the Frederik Meijer Gardens and Sculpture Park in Grand Rapids, MI to see Chihuly: A New Eden. We were not disappointed. The gardens themselves were beautiful and filled with interesting sculpture. I will write more about that at a later date. Today, I just want to share with you Dale Chihuly. I think the pictures will speak for themselves.
Next Chihuly exhibit for me...Nashville, TN in July. Cheekwood Botanical Garden is hosting Chihuly at Cheekwood through October 31st. If you have a chance to see one of his exhibits in your area, I highly recommend it.
