Magic in the Garden

When you combine the amazing glass creations of renowned artist Dale Chihuly and the beautiful 66 acre Dallas Arboretum there can only be one result, absolute Magic in the Garden! Ten very talented (and very careful) people took 12 days to install the unique exhibit, with spectacular results!

Chihuly’s “Aqua Blue and Amber Chandelier.”

A boat is filled with a myriad of glass elements and balls patterned after Japanese fishing floats.

In the Arboretum’s “A Woman’s Garden” the artist created “Asymmetrical Towers” of scarlet and yellow glass.

“Blue marlins” are wonderfully positioned in front of a glass panel of falling water.

Chihuly’s “Sun” is a radiant 14 foot diameter globe of red, orange, and yellow glass branches curling outward from the center.

Large “Blue Polyvitro Crystals” are placed in a running stream in one of the Arboretum’s exhibit gardens.

Phantasmagorical glass sculptures erupt from the pond in glistening green and yellow.

“Dallas Star” is a dramatic sculpture of deep cobalt blue and clear glass bursting with energy.

“Citron Green and Red Tower” is a creation that evolved from Chihuly’s blown glass Chandeliers project.

If you find yourself in Dallas be sure to visit the Arboretum’s Chihuly exhibit on the beautiful shores of White Rock Lake. It runs until November 5, 2012. Selected evening viewing dates are available by advanced reservation and would be absolutely magical!
