I was lucky to catch the last day of the Chihuly Exhibit at the Denver Botanic Gardens, one of the first outdoor exhibitions of artwork by this celebrated American glass artist in the Rocky Mountain region. Chihuly’s sculptures graced the grounds of the Denver Botanic Garden 24 acre oasis in bold colors, contrasting and clashing with the perfect subtle muted hues of the winter landscape. His artwork ranged from unique water features to a 30-foot neon tower. This special engagement went from June 14 – November 30, 2014.
I had heard of Chihuly, but never seen his artwork in person. It is shockingly beautiful, with colors you can't imagine and bold in size. Chihuly is famous for his grandiose architectural installations around the world. Needless to say Chihuly is world renown for his avant-garde glass style as a fine art. If you ever get a chance to see an exhibit of his, don't pass it up.
When you are visiting Denver, don't pass up visiting the Denver Botanic Gardens at 10th & York Street. There is always something interesting growing and going on there.
Please share if you saw this Chihuly Exhibit in Denver. Please comment on how his artwork might affect color and art in your garden.
