Chihuly at the Atlanta Botanical Garden

Located in the heart of Atlanta, the Atlanta Botanical Garden for 75 years has fostered appreciation, understanding and stewardship of plants and nature. The Botanical Garden is a living museum featuring exhibits and cultural events such as Art in the Garden, Fuqua Conservatory, Children's Gardens, Fuqua Orchid Center and Concerts in the Garden.

This year the Atlanta Botanical Garden brings renowned artist Dale Chihuly and his glass works to the garden. Chihuly is one of four Americans whose works are in the Louvre. The artist and his work have been documented for film and television. During Chihuly in the Garden his works will be placed in a variety of settings, colorful sculptures float in ponds, hang from the ceiling structure and intermingle with the Atlanta Botanical Garden's flourishing plant collections.
