Visiting Denver--Chihuly Art at the Denver Botanic Gardens

The Denver Botanic Gardens are  a glorious place.

Right now there is an art display of Dale Chihuly's glass sculpture throughout the garden.

The art makes me think about gardens and art: plants are beautiful without sculpture--in the next blog I have pictures of plants from the Denver Botanic Garden that same day, seeing it as "great art, by Nature." (link)

But the Chihuly pieces are a "must see" while they're in Denver (until Nov. 2014). I like some very much, for others I thought the garden more beautiful before they were added. And so it was great fun.

Before letting you wander through the pictures, let me point out that, like the plants, the art is different from every angle, near and far. Marilyn, volunteering at the desk when I came, said that they look very different now from when they were installed: the plants have grown. So you can expect a changing vista as the summer turns to autumn.

A tour of some of the pieces:
