Chi... Chi... ChiWHOy???

When we were at my parents' house, Mom, Grandma and I went to the Missouri Botanical Gardens to see an art exhibit.
Glass in the Garden brings the work of renowned artist Dale Chihuly to St. Louis in a custom-designed exhibition dramatically installed within the natural landscapes of the Garden.
A few years ago, a friend of mine told me about this artist who worked with glass. He had an exhibit at the OKC Art Museum, and I should check it out if I was up there. Well, I was up there, and I loved it. So, when Mom told me that Chihuly had an exhibit at the Botanical Gardens, I really wanted to check it out. Here's one of my photos from the exhibit:

Yes, those are all glass "onions" in the reflecting pond. In the evenings, they are illuminated, which must look amazing.

Here's a photo of Mom's favorite piece in the exhibit:

If you're in the St. Louis area this summer, take the time to see this installation. I know it's a little pricey, but... it's worth it. And, better yet, go back again on a Thursday evening for "Chihuly Nights" and see all of the pieces illuminated.
