Dale Chihuly’s name has become synonymous with the art of blown glass. Glass is also typically synonymous with another word: Fragile. Although Colorado is one of the most hail-prone states in the country, that hasn’t stopped Denver Botanic Gardens from hosting a monumental sculpture show of glass.
A towering pile of giant glass icicles greets visitors to Denver Botanic Gardens. It's part of the Chihuly exhibition, an installation of glass-and-steel sculptures that spring up like alien flowers among the garden's 24 acres.
