New Orleans Botanical Garden in New Orleans City Park
New Orleans, LA United States
Chihuly presents Rose Crystal Tower at New Orleans Botanical Garden in New Orleans City Park. The large-scale sculpture stands 22-feet tall and is composed of Polyvitro crystals and steel. Polyvitro is the artist’s term for a plastic material with similar visual properties to glass. The two-year public installation is underwritten by The Helis Foundation.
New Orleans’ rich creative history offers infinite inspiration for artists. I am excited to present Rose Crystal Tower at New Orleans City Park and hope it is enjoyed by visitors and residents, alike. –Chihuly
