ArtsATL went behind the scenes at the Atlanta Botanical Garden to see how a team from Chihuly Studio installed the exhibition Chihuly in the Garden. We then documented several times how the spectacular works of art are presented in two experiences –– by day and by night. This is the return of Dale Chihuly to the Garden for an encore exhibition that is double in size compared to his blockbuster installation in 2004.
