Dale Chihuly is known for breathing life into glass.  His work speaks for itself and is on display in more than 200 museums around the world.   A temporary display at the Desert Botanical Garden in Phoenix, introduced nature to fine art.   Color is what we notice first as we stroll along the garden trails,  and yet, it is harmonious differences  that surprise us.  In the day the brilliant glass stands out against the dusty, green desert, and at night when the garden tends to rest, the illumination allows the garden to play.  Enjoy Chihuly’s story.

I don’t know if something can be too colorful.

Because after all, color to the eye is like music to the ear.
