The Desert and Chihuly: Botanical Garden, Phoenix
The Desert Botanical Garden in Phoenix, Arizona is stunning. However, when you intersperse the extraordinary Chihuly glass sculptures among the cacti and succulents, the Garden is nothing short of breathtaking. Chihuly, a renowned glass artist, has won numerous awards and is a leader in the development of glass as a fine art. His exhibit will only be onsite through May 18, 2014. However, Chihuly has shown here in previous years, and will more than likely return again. The sights at the botanical garden are spectacular, with or without glass art. Guided or or self-guided tours through the Garden are available. Allow about four hours to relax and enjoy the beautiful scenery. Here’s some of what you’ll see when you visit the Botanical Garden in Phoenix.
