CHIHULY IN THE GARDEN EXIBITION

The weather was fine, so along with our holiday guests we headed to the Desert Botanical Garden In Phoenix for the stunning exhibition of art glass by Dale Chihuly.
Chihuly is credited with revolutionizing the Studio Glass movement and elevating the perception of the glass medium from craft to fine art. He is renowned for his ambitious architectural installations around the world, in historic cities, museums and gardens. Chihuly’s work is included in more than 200 museum collections worldwide including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Smithsonian American Art Museum and the Corning Museum of Glass.
Here are some pictures I took along the trail
What a fun day we spent together enjoying art and nature!
