CHIHULY'S
HANGING MASTERPIECE

Renowned glass artist,
Dale Chihuly,
has many installations in
and throughout the 
Missouri Botanical Garden.

His Tour de Force 
at the 79-acre horticultural estate
is easily the 928-piece
Blue Chandelier (2006)
which hangs at the entrance
in the RidgwayVisitor Center.

Comprised of 928 unique 
hand blown pieces
and suspended in mid-air,
visitors walk beneath it
as they enter the garden.

(It is lowered twice each year
for a thorough dusting.)
