Chihuly Denver Botanical Gardens
Chihuly at the Denver Botanical Gardens was one of the most interesting visual experiences that mixes art and nature. The artist, Dale Chihuly, created pieces that were installed throughout the various gardens. His medium is glass which is a naturally occurring element lending itself to the plants and flowers. Each piece of art was stretched and molded into organic shapes that were reminiscent of the leaves and stems. However, the colors were so vibrant or whimsical that the gardens transformed from an environment for nature to an experience with magic! See the video for a guided tour of the experience.
