Dale Chihuly

 

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.

Passion. Plants. People. Planet. 

The mission of the Missouri Botanical Garden is "To discover and share knowledge about plants and their environment in order to preserve and enrich life."

Your support makes it possible for the Garden to discover and protect plant life here at home and around the world.
