ST. LOUIS, MISS.- The work of world-renowned artist Dale Chihuly is on view at the Missouri Botanical Garden in a stunning exhibition uniting art and nature. With thousands of pieces of blown glass forms in 18 dramatic installations throughout the Garden’s grounds, Chihuly in the Garden 2023 presents these artworks on a grand scale. The Garden is hosting Chihuly in the Garden 2023 daytime viewing through October 15, 2023.

Garden President, Dr. Peter Wyse Jackson, noted “Chihuly in the Garden 2023 is our most ambitious exhibition to date. We are pleased to host the work of the legendary Dale Chihuly. His art, designed specifically for the botanical garden setting, captures the imagination. As these works are especially mesmerizing at night, we’re delighted to offer our Chihuly Nights experience.”

Hailed as one of the most important artists of the 21st century, Dale Chihuly has transformed glass into a multidimensional artform. An advocate for beauty and institutions, Chihuly began working with botanical gardens in 2001, bringing art lovers outside and inspiring garden lovers to see art in a new light. His renown has continued to grow nationally and globally, most recently as the subject of a Smithsonian Channel documentary.

Chihuly in the Garden 2023 has been curated expressly for the Missouri Botanical Garden. Chihuly’s work is sited in dialogue with its environment, enhancing the beauty of nature and amplifying the appreciation of the natural world. Chihuly in the Garden 2023 will be an expansive exhibition, drawing inspiration from the Garden’s landscape and using form and color to ignite joy.

The Garden is also hosting Chihuly Nights, giving visitors the opportunity to experience these masterpieces in an extraordinary way. The installations are transcendent when illuminated at night. Visitors can enjoy live music and entertainment as they stroll the Garden. Food and drinks will be available for purchase.

This exhibition is organized by Missouri Botanical Garden in cooperation with Chihuly Studio. The artwork on view is protected by copyright and any copying is expressly prohibited.
