Missouri Botanical Garden Blue Chandelier, 2006, by renowned glass artist Dale Chihuly, hangs from the atrium, visible through the front window. The sculpture was assembled on site in mid-air in January 2006 as a preview to the "Glass in the Garden: Chihuly at the Missouri Botanical Garden" exhibition. The sculpture was purchased for the Garden with funds donated by Emerson and from the estate of Dr. Richard I.C. and Barbara Hagnauer Muckerman, in honor of Hilbert W. and Amy J. Hagnauer. The installation weighs 2,300 pounds and measures six feet across by over 20 feet long. It consists of 928 individual blue and clear glass spirals and gooseneck shapes.

Laura, thank you so much for taking a pic and sharing his glorious work of art with us. *sigh* So sublime....


(Dave, stop teasing me! It's too far away for me just to pop down for a quick visit. Even bigger *sigh*!)

Thank you very much, morris.

No, warbler, I did not get a photo of the whole thing. I would have had to get farther away and then it would be difficult to see the detail in it. We only went tom the Orchid Show, the Climatron and the Temperate House. Then we had to leave.

Nice lj. Did you get a photo of the whole thing? Did you all go out in the gardens and if so did you see his other works there? Thanks.

Beautiful sculpture, laura!

Oh PG, you are so funny. They had you check the BB gun because you already shot up two priceless Chihuly's...and they didn't want you near this million dollar one.

I do not understand it but they made me check my BB gun. Can you imagine that? First the tripod then the BB gun not to friendly of a place.

Thank you, aggie and Lorna.

Lorna, PG and possibly the rest of the gang, took the full length of the sculpture. I did not. Maybe they will post their shots, and then you will be able to see just how huge it is! It was pretty amazing!
