I was recently in Atlanta and after a day of shopping we were left with the question of what we should do next. So I jumped at the chance of suggesting a visit to the Atlanta Botanical Gardens. What was just something to do to pass some time became into an amazing exploration of glass, light and nature. Unbeknownst to us, it was the last night for the Botanical Garden's Chihuly Nights. What is Chihuly Nights you ask? It is an exhibition of these wonderous glass sculptures by the the sculptor Dale Chihuly in all shapes, sizes and color placed carefully thoughout the garden and when it gets dark they light up. We were like kids in wonderland! I had to share some of his work that I had the chance to see with you.
Dale Chihuly has led the avant-garde in the development of glass as fine art and has exhibited his work in many museums, botanical gardens with also having installations in major venues and places like the canals and piazzas of Venice and at the Palais du Louvre in Paris. His love for the art shows in his work as it puts smiles on all who sees it. If you get a chance to see one of his exhibitions or installations don't miss it.
