Chihuly in The Garden Phoenix, At The Desert Botanical Gardens

Chihuly in the Garden Phoenix 1

Winter is the perfect time of year to visit the Chihuly in the Garden Phoenix, at the Desert Botanical Gardens.  Beautiful blue skies, seventy-five degree weather, and low humidity make a stroll through the desert foliage delightful.

From November 2013 through May 18, 2014, visitors have an additional incentive to visit the gardens, with the special glass sculpture exhibit, Chihuly.    Created by celebrated glass artist, Dale Chihuly, the exhibit features sculptures of every size, shape, and color in enchanting displays among the vegetation.  Come take a look at the beauty of Chihuly

The best time to visit Chihuly is at dusk, when our beautiful Arizona sunsets offer a brilliant backdrop to the sculptures.
 Chihuly has three exhibit tour times daily:  8 a.m. – noon; 12 – 4 p.m.; and 4 – 8 p.m.  Tickets are $22.00 for adults, $20.00 for seniors, $12 for students, and $10 for children.  For more information and to purchase tickets, visit the Desert Botanical Gardens website.
