Dale Chihuly at the Desert Botanical Gardens 2014

The Chihuly in the Garden exhibit has returned in 2014 to the Desert Botanical Gardens in Phoenix Arizona.  The exhibit has all new sculptures since it appeared at the gardens in 2009.

I have already visited the exhibit four times since it opened in late 2013 and will go many more times before it closes on May 18, 2014. I just can not get enough of it.

Here are some photos I have taken of the 2014 version of the Dale Chihuly exhibit.

    Awesome photos. We wanted to visit his garden when we were in Seattle but we were staying with an artist and she said he wasn’t a very nice person and hadn’t done much for the community. They wanted to donate some of the ticket entry to charity but he said no, or something like that. Anyway, we didn’t end up going.

    We just went to see this! I can see why you keep going back–it’s an awesome exhibit! I loved how large all the sculptures are and they are so pretty at night!

    Hands down this looks like the best and most creative botanical garden I have ever heard of. Your photos of the artwork are absolutely stunning. I will definitely have to make a stop here if I’m driving through Arizona

    I visited the Gardens yesterday but did not get the names of all the glass pieces and I haven’t been able to find a directory/pic so I can I.D. all my photos. That would be very nice to have. Thanks. Linda
