Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park To Host Dale Chihuly Exhibit

Frederik Meijer Gardens and Sculpture Park in Grand Rapids, MI will celebrate the works of Dale Chihuly with an exclusive outdoor sculpture exhibition entitled “A New Eden” from April 30 through September 30, 2010.

“This exhibition celebrates one of the world’s foremost glass artist and his much-anticipated return to Meijer Gardens,” said Joseph Becherer, chief curator and vice president. “Specifically created for this exhibition, Chihuly’s sculptural glass infuses his expression of nature with the stunning landscape of our grounds.”

“Chihuly at Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park: A New Eden” will include thousands of pieces of glass in 15 different settings across the 132-acre grounds. Each site-specific sculpture will harmonize with the surrounding natural environment, and bright, bold horticulture designs will change with the seasons.

For “A New Eden,” Chihuly and his team are working with the Meijer Gardens Horticultural team to celebrate the duality of art and nature. Chosen sites span the grounds of Meijer Gardens including the English Perennial Garden, Woodland Shade Garden, Lena Meijer Children’s Garden, wetland areas and the 30-acre Sculpture Park.

“Horticulture and sculpture are fully unified in this exhibition. The landscaping incorporates our natural terrain in addition to large-scale expression of bold colors, textures and patterns complimentary to Chihuly’s work,” said Steve LaWarre, director of horticulture at Meijer Gardens. “Among the most beautiful discoveries that visitors will find is how ‘A New Eden’ will change between April and September. Color, light, and shadows will delicately evolve with plants and glass as we move from spring and summer into autumn.”

“‘A New Eden’ is a highlight of our 15-year anniversary,” said David Hooker, president and CEO. “It is significant to showcase an artist who portrays our dual mission so magnificently.”

Meijer Gardens has a long and rewarding relationship with Dale Chihuly. ‘A New Eden’ is the sculptor’s second exhibition at Meijer Gardens. “Color & Light: Chihuly at the Gardens” was an indoor exhibition held in 2003. The exhibition saw more than a half-million visitors in four months.
