Chihuly Garden Installations
I want my work to look like it just happened, as if it were made by nature. —Dale Chihuly
Chihuly Garden Installations explores the results of Dale Chihuly’s investigation into designing site-specific installations for some of the world’s preeminent gardens and conservatories. This handsomely illustrated book follows this investigation from its beginning at Garfield Park Conservatory in Chicago through botanic, tropical, sculpture, and desert gardens, ending with his installation at Cheekwood in Nashville. Tracing the correspondence between his art and botanical life, Chihuly Garden Installations shows how the exchange between art and nature can shift from the harmonious and tranquil to stunning juxtapositions of scale and color. Chihuly Garden Installations showcases the ever-fascinating arrangement of Chihuly’s unique glass sculptures among the natural beauty of the plants, flowers, and landscapes of these astounding gardens.
Gardens include: Garfield Park Conservatory, Franklin Park Conservatory, Atlanta Botanical Garden, Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden, Missouri Botanical Garden, New York Botanical Garden, Phipps Conservatory, Desert Botanical Garden, Meijer Garden, and Cheekwood.
