CHIHULY lands at The New York Botanical Garden

The work of artist Dale Chihuly is featured throughout the garden, now through October 29, 2017.

The exhibit, simply titled CHIHULY, features the artist’s signature blown-glass organic shapes scattered throughout the Garden. Over 20 different installations appear in the exhibit, including White Tower with Fiori and  Persian Pond and Fiori in the Enid A. Haupt Conservatory, the latter of which is an homage to Dale Chihuly’s 2006 New York Botanical Garden exhibition Blue Herons. The Lillian Goldman Fountain of Life is host to Blue Polyvitro Crystals, Leon Levy Visitor Center hosts three Chandeliers, and the Arthur and Janet Ross Conifer Arboretum showcases the spectacular Sapphire Star.

Some of the most extraordinary installations are Koda Study #1, Koda Study #2, and Float Boat, each of which have been placed in the OvS-designed Native Plant Garden. Situated over the Garden’s 250-foot long water feature, the installations offer new perspectives on reflection and light, and are constantly reinterpreted by the sun as it traverses the sky. The pieces at the Native Plant Garden, along with a third Koda Study in the Haupt Conservatory, are a nod to Chihuly’s Artpark, which was on display in Lewiston, NY during the summer of 1975.

CHIHULY Nights are a chance to see the exhibit dramatically lit amidst the garden backdrop. Advance ticket purchase is recommended.
