Chihuly at Kew: Reflections on Nature promises the perfect marriage of art, science, and nature, as the artist’s installations are presented amid the spectacular landscapes of one of London’s few UNESCO world heritage sites. The majority of artwork featured in the exhibition has never been seen before in the UK, including a specially designed sculpture for Kew’s iconic Temperate House. Highlights include Chihuly’s celestial Sapphire Star, along with selections from the artist’s body of work including Drawings, Venetians, Seaforms, Baskets, and Rotolo, among others. Chihuly at Kew: Reflections on Nature marks the artist’s much anticipated return to the Royal Botanical Gardens since his 2005 exhibition Gardens of Glass: Chihuly at Kew.
