Chihuly in the Desert

This year, world-renowned glass artist, Dale Chihuly, returned the Desert Botanical Gardens for the second time to display his incredible works of art.  Chihuly is famous for his architectural installations around the world, in historic cities, museums and gardens. His work can be found in more than 200 museums worldwide including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Smithsonian American Art Museum and the Corning Museum of Glass.

A few days ago our company, Velocity Retail Group visited the exhibit to take in the beautiful sites of Chihuly’s work against the desert canvas.  The colors and shapes are spectacular against a backdrop of blue sky, cacti, and plants native to Arizona.

In a recent interview with the Arizona Republic, Chihuly said,  “I’ve always loved the desert. I’ve done 12 garden shows, and this is one of the greatest shows I’ve ever done. I love working in the desert.”

Don’t miss this amazing exhibition.  It runs until May 18th.

Mark - Fantastic shots, Dave! His glass work is amazing. We had a Chihuly exhibit here in Nashville at the Cheekwood Botanical Gardens, which was even more spectacular at night, as all the installations were lit up! Fantastic.
