VISUAL ART LECTURE: DALE CHIHULY AT NYBG with Professor Thomas Germano
2:00 PM

Exhibiting through October 29, 2017, new installations created by world-renowned glass artist, Dale Chihuly (b.1941) for The New York Botanical Gardens complement the Garden’s landscape and architecture. On view are more than 20 installations, as well as a display of the artist's drawings. Three new works—Koda studies—provide a rare opportunity to view the stunning effects of reflection and light created by these colored panels as day transitions to night. In an homage to Chihuly's first NYBG exhibition in 2006, Blue Herons, originally in the Tropical Pool, are showcased in a new display within the Conservatory, itself considered a work of glass art. These graceful forms are among many of Chihuly’s artworks seen within the grand architecture of the landmark Victorian-style glasshouse, including White Tower with Fiori. Other sites feature the artist’s creations throughout The NYBG’s 250-acre National Historic Landmark landscape. These unique works highlight the close relation between Chihuly’s organic shapes and the natural environment.
Professor Thomas Germano will present a visual lecture discussing the art of Dale Chihuly and specifically, his current NYBG show.
