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
