Team Chihuly has completed the installation of Chihuly in the Garden, which opens to the public November 10. The exhibition – consisting of 21 installations - is installed throughout the 55 acre garden and is on view until May 18, 2014.
The exhibition presents site-specific installations including:
Desert Towers – Welcoming visitors to the garden are the Desert Towers, which were installed as the entry-point to Chihuly’s first Desert Botanical exhibition (2008). The installation was purchased by the Garden as a legacy to the exhibition.
Sapphire Star – Anchoring the exhibition in the Ottosen Entry Garden, Sapphire Star is a dynamic composition of more than 720 blue to clear spires, which glisten by day and when dramatically lit, shine brightly by night.
Desert Neon – Twenty-six 5 x 10’ red and green neon panels will highlight the desert butte from above the Desert Botanical landscape.
