Glass Menagerie


If you thought the Dallas Arboretum%26rsquo;s ethereal gardens couldn%26rsquo;t get any more hue-drenched, artist Dale Chihuly is bringing his large-scale sinewy glass figures to blanket the 66 lush acres in his signature wash of electric color. The artist%26rsquo;s nature-inspired well-known glass sculptures such as Seaforms, Niijima Floats, Venetians, Fioris and Macchia Loops have been glorified over the world %26mdash; including The Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Smithsonian American Art Museum and the Corning Museum of Glass. Beginning Saturday, May 5, Chihuly%26rsquo;s impressive sanctuary will float within the garden%26rsquo;s flower beds, grassy knolls, ponds and fountains, as no portion of the garden was off-limits to his artistic grasp. Take in Chihuly Nights, a magical after-dark exhibition with illuminated sculptures and four dining options, including dinner at Restaurant DeGolyer and alfresco noshes at Caf%26eacute; on the Green. The evening exhibit is open Tuesdays through Thursdays from May to July, with the daytime exhibition open seven days a week and running through November 5, rain or shine. 8525 Garland Road, 214.515.6500; dallasarboretum.org.
