Hailed as one of the most important artists of the 21st century, Dale Chihuly has transformed glass into a multidimensional artform. An advocate for beauty and institutions, Chihuly began
working with botanical gardens in 2001, bringing art lovers outside and inspiring garden lovers to see art in a new light. His renown has continued to grow nationally and globally, most recently as the subject of a Smithsonian Channel documentary.

Chihuly in the Garden 2023 has been curated expressly for the Missouri Botanical Garden. Chihuly’s work is sited in dialogue with its environment, enhancing the beauty of nature and
amplifying the appreciation of the natural world. Chihuly in the Garden 2023 will be an expansive exhibition, drawing inspiration from the Garden’s landscape and using form and color
to ignite joy.

The Garden is also hosting Chihuly Nights, giving visitors the opportunity to experience these masterpieces in an extraordinary way. The installations are transcendent when illuminated at
night. Visitors will enjoy live music and entertainment as they stroll the Garden. Food and drinks will be available for purchase.
