Chihuly is Back!

Atlanta art and cultural aficionados rejoice! Internationally acclaimed artist, Dale Chihuly, is back in the Atlanta Botanical Garden for a follow up to his 2004 show.

Chihuly in the Garden includes 19 installation sites set in and among the garden’s beautiful grounds as well as inside the magnificent Orchid Center.  The signature vibrant colors absolutely POP! especially at night.  I originally experienced the exhibit at night when the garden has extended hours – this is a great way to wind down after the work week on Friday, especially if you intend on trying out the delicious fares at The Café at Linton’s.

The return of Chihuly marks the 40th anniversary of the gardens and is showcasing how much the garden has grown since I first the same event back in 2004. “Roughly a third of “Chihuly in the Garden” is being created uniquely for Atlanta. The works will be on view amid plantings, floating in pools and suspended in air,” (AJC article). If you plan on going- especially at night-I can tell you this one thing — EXPECT MAGIC!
