Grand Rapids - Frederik Meijer Gardens [A New Eden - by Dale Chihuly]


Citron Green and Red Tower [English perennial and Bulb Garden]

One of the high points of my Grand Rapids tour was temporary exhibit..A New Eden - By Dale Chihuly.. at the Frederik Meijer Garden & Sculpture Park.. I was not aware of this exhibit when I made my trip to Grand Rapids to see the Art Prize, 2010.. Over a course of three years, Chihuly developed 15 stunning sites in celebration of the 15th Anniversary of Meijer Gardens.. Here's images of a few..
