Chihuly exhibit almost over in Atlanta

Time is running out to see Dale Chihuly’s spectacular glass art exhibition at the Atlanta Botanical Garden. The exhibit closes Oct. 30

Since April, Atlanta Botanical Garden has welcomed thousands of eager guests to experience world-renowned artist Dale Chihuly’s "Chihuly in the Garden." With less than two weeks left, visitors have only a little time left to see the colorful exhibit for the first time or one last time before it officially closes on Oct. 30.

To accommodate record crowds expected during the final weeks, the Garden is now offering Chihuly Nights six days a week – Tuesday through Sunday – in addition to its regular daytime hours.

The popular exhibition, which opened April 30 and coincides with the Garden’s 40th anniversary, features 19 sculptural installation sites, five of which were created specifically for the garden, intertwined with the natural beauty of the Garden’s sprawling 30 acres. In the evening, the colorful work may be experienced in a different light when the sculptures are dramatically lit during Chihuly Nights.
