Chihuly Exhibit

I made it to the Chihuly Exhibit once more this week. This time I arrived in late afternoon and was able to stay until it got dark. This gave me the opportunity to see the glass exhibits with sunshine first and then glowing with lights later. I was also lucky enough to go on a night when the temperatures stayed beautifully mild. So here is another picture from the exhibit to go with the ones I posted in December. In this one I was able to catch some sunset enhanced sky in the background.
I’ll post a few more photos in the coming weeks.

Chihuly's art is immediately identifiable. It looks like it's outside, but is it in a gallery next to a window? Lucky you to see the exhibit; I'll look forward to more photos.

Kate, it is outside. This exhibit is at the Desert Botanical Gardens in Phoenix. He has done garden settings before but, they have always been inside structures. This is his first that is completely out doors.

Julie and I went to the Chihuly's exhibit last weekend wit other members fo the family and it was great. Julie went back at night to take more photos, which she intends to post in the future on her new Scottsdale Daily Photo site.

We did not realize when we bought the tickets that it would be the same day as the P.F. Chang's Rock & Roll Marathon. It took us an hour to find a route into the Desert Botanical Garden that did not cross the marathon course. Visiting the Chihuly exhibit made it worth the effort.

I'm always attracted to your Chihuly Exhibit photos — I think I better find out more about it. I don't even know if 'Chihuly' is a person, an art style, a group, or whatever! ;D

This photo is awesome! It's cool to see the glass in a natural habitat like this. Amazing.
