CHIHULY @ New York Botanical Gardens
For the exhibition, which runs through Oct. 29, the Seattle glassmaker Dale Chihuly and his team have spread 20 different installations throughout the garden’s 250 acres. The exhibition is certainly a sensory experience, some say sensory overload. Brightly coloured glass juts up from serene gardens, complimenting and sometimes competing with the environment. I loved it though, it was an adventure, a breathtaking spectacle of color, light, and form.
