Tonight is a special event at the Denver Botanic Gardens celebrating Dale Chihuly’s glass art.  We decorated the event by making twisted balloon sculptures in the same style as some of his exquisite art works.  Here is the write up from the Denver Botanic Gardens website.

“Denver Botanic Gardens presents the Rocky Mountain Region’s first major outdoor exhibition of artwork by celebrated American artist, Dale Chihuly. Chihuly’s sculptures – ranging in size and form – add bold colors and dramatic beauty to the Gardens’ 24-acre urban oasis.”

“Chihuly is credited with revolutionizing the Studio Glass movement and elevating the perception of the glass medium from the realm of craft to fine art. He is renowned for ambitious architectural installations around the world, in historic cities, museums and gardens.”
