    Smile Chihuly Nights at Denver Botanic Gardens

    The Denver Botanic Gardens have been having an art display in amongst its grounds. It is all blown glass sculptures of varying sizes, colors and shapes. The artist is Dale Chihuly, a renowned glass artist.

    I was able to see it last night. It is sold out for the rest of its run.

    Here are a few of the exhibits.

    I have seen a TV special on him. He is an inspiring man.

    Thank you so much for posting this, Harvey! You are very fortunate to have seen it! Dale Chihuly has reinvented the art of blowing glass. As with any type of art, it's only good if YOU like it but I feel that he is one of the greatest artists of our time.

    Dale Chihuly attended UW-Madison so his art is well known here, a very public example in the Kohl Center on campus where UW basketball and hockey are played. His piece in the lobby of the Bellagio in Las Vegas is probably the best known glass art in the world. Brilliant to display his very organic forms in a botanical garden setting. Thanks for posting.

    I am certain that the plants around the sculptures was prettier a week or 2 prior to the sub-zero temps we recently had.

    We didn't get as cold as you but I woke one morning to 13F. As I type it is 67F and two days from now (Thanksgiving) snow is predicted with a high of 36F. Crazy weather!!
