In Denver, one of the things I wanted to see is the Dale Chihuly exhibit at the Denver Botanical Gardens. He is a world-famous glass blower/artist/designer whose work I have admired for many years. A lovely collection of his work is in the Spencer Theater for the Performing Arts in Ruidoso, NM. And I've seen other smallish collections in various museums and galleries around the world.
But nothing set me up for the incredible installations at the Botanical Gardens. If you are a traveler and have any chance to go to Denver this summer or fall, you will want to make a trip to see this.
Nuff said. Here are some pictures!
