Denver Botanic Gardens to Purchase Chihuly Sculpture

For those who have seen the Denver Botanic Garden’s “Chihuly” exhibit, this next bit of new may be exciting. According to the Denver Post, the Gardens have commissioned a special piece from the artist, Dale Chihuly, to be a permanent work of art in the garden.

 

Chihuly is a renowned glass artist, and his pieces at the recent exhibit have drawn record crowds. The piece he is working on for the Gardens is titled “Colorado,” according to the Post.

 

“I just tried to figure out what would be the best piece for this location,” the artist reportedly said during the unveiling of the sculpture’s rendering.

 

The piece of art will have 750 pointy yellow, red and orange rods that shoot off a central axis and is inspired by local sunsets, the newspaper said.

 

The Chihuly exhibit will be on display until Nov. 30. For more information, go to botanicgardens.org.
