Blue Chandelier

By Dale Chihuly
Category: Sculpture


In 2006, the Garden presented “Glass in the Garden,” an exhibition of blown glass sculptures by renowned artist Dale Chihuly. The spectacular 928-piece Missouri Botanical Garden Blue Chandelier, 2006 is permanently suspended in the Ridgway Visitor Center atrium. Chihuly’s Walla Wallas were purchased for the Garden, where the onion-shaped glass floats in the central axis reflecting pool during warm weather months. Several graceful, amber-colored Sunset Herons were also purchased and are displayed inside the Climatron.
