If you haven’t had a chance to check out Chihuly’s glass sculptures at Denver Botanic Gardens, hurry!

This popular exhibition ends November 30th.

Artist Dale Chihuly blew up the art world by taking glass art form from small scale craft to large scale architectural installments. His pieces are groundbreaking examples of sculpture unique in the glass blowing community. His installation at the Denver Botanic Gardens is simply stunning. Stark contrasts of green grass and towering ruby red spires gleam in the daylight. Chihuly’s work lights up at night, glowing like magical glass castles reflected in the cool dark pools of Denver Botanic’s water gardens. Scroll down for more examples of his work and upcoming events at Denver Botanical Gardens.
