Chihuly Exhibit at the Denver Botanic Gardens

The Denver Botanic Gardens sometimes hosts Artist Sculpture to feature in their gardens. This summer the famous glass artist, Chihuly, has a colorful exhibit interspersed in the different flowers and plants. He makes each piece separately and wires them together to create his art.
Each sculpture blends beautifully with the surrounding type of flower.

My favorite exhibit was the waterlily gardens. I have never seen so many flowers blooming at one time. There were flowers of all colors: pink, red, white.

Chihuly has such a gift of color theory and what colors go well with each part of the garden. Shape is so important too.

Have you ever seen so many water lily flower shapes and colors?

These glass balls in the boat are so playful

I love these colors in this boat in the pond.

We had a great day on our summer vacation! They also have a movie in the cafe building you can see how and where Chihuly displays his art. Don't miss this exhibit. It is here in Denver until October.
