Chihuly Glass Exhibit Extended at Arboretum
Nov 09, 2012 11:32AM
A Dallas Arboretum exhibit by famed glass artist Dale Chihuly will now run through the end of the year, instead of November 5. Attendance at the Arboretum has more than doubled, with more than 461,000 visitors since May, when the exhibit opened. Board Chairman Brian Shivers characterized the move as a "holiday gift to the city"
The exhibition features whimsical, colored glass sculptures made by the Washington-based artist. The pieces have been on display outside in the Arboretum gardens, and a June storm with baseball-sized hail damaged some of them, necessitating repairs.
The exhibit is open every day through December 31 and three nights a week—Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, providing two amazingly different experiences. Between December 26 and 30, the exhibition will be open every night for a special end-of-the-year rush before the sculptures are moved for good.
