A few weeks ago my Arranger and I visited friends in Atlanta, GA to hear world class violinist Joshua Bell play the Tchaikovsky Violin Concerto with the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra. It was magnificent, a performance for the ages.
While there we visited the Atlanta Botanical Garden to see a special exhibition of the works of Dale Chihuly, one of the world’s master glass artists. The twenty pieces in the exhibition were created specifically to be displayed in a garden. And what a display it was.
It was difficult to select a favorite, but I will do so. This fountain is beyond description.
I will let these images speak for themselves. Click on the individual photographs for full screen viewing and cycle through them.
The piece featured on the cover of the Exhibition Guide is extraordinary; it contains over a thousand individual pieces of sculptured glass.
To enhance the viewing experience, all twenty pieces were lighted in the evening. I had some difficulty with my camera getting night shots, so I am able to show only these two:
I understand that the exhibition will be moving to other gardens. Please be on the lookout for this exceptional show if it comes to your area.
