Dale Chihuly returning to Fairchild Tropical Garden
Chihuly's magnificent works of art will be installed throughout many of the Garden exhibits, including the lush Rainforest, sprawling Palm Collection, picturesque Bailey Palm Glade Vista, and the new Wings of the Tropics exhibit, where they will be surrounded by hundreds of colorful and exotic butterflies. Visitors can admire the luminous works of art reflecting off the surface of the palm-lined lakes, where art and nature will meld seamlessly together. Works will be nestled next to the broadleaf plants and shimmering orchids of the continental U.S.'s only outdoor Rainforest exhibit. They will stand tall alongside stately cycads and palms or lay low among vibrant bromeliads. Bright water lilies will float beside them in the Victoria Amazonica Pool, uniting art with the magnificent colors of the tropical landscape.
Chihuly previously exhibited work in the Garden during the 2005-2006 and 2006-2007 Art at Fairchild seasons. For his exhibition, the artist will debut new works of art that have never before been exhibited. Special art viewings will be held throughout the season, including night viewings and activities during Art Basel Miami Beach.
The opening of the Chihuly exhibition also coincides with the opening of the Adam R. Rose and Peter R. McQuillan Arts Center, a 3,000-square-foot facility that will enrich Miami's cultural renaissance with programs celebrating the fine arts. As they walk into the building, visitors will be met with botanical reliefs on the exterior walls that were created by Miami-based artist Naomi Fisher. During Art at Fairchild, it will be home to the Chihuly Gallery.
As part of Design at Fairchild, a design exhibition featuring 99 limited edition Fish Chairs by Indian designer Satyendra Pakhalé will also be on view. He partnered with creative director Giulio Cappellini of the Italian design firm Cappellini, part of the Haworth Collection, to produce the designs. The Fish Chairs will be surrounded by more than 700 species of tropical flowering trees in the Arboretum. Pakhalé is represented by Cologne, Germany-based ammann//gallery, and his Fairchild exhibition will be curated by Cristina Grajales of New York's Cristina Grajales Gallery.
Prices may vary for art-related events. General garden admission is $25 for adults, $18 for seniors 65 and up, $12 for children 6-17, and free for Fairchild members and children 5 and under. For more information, please visit the Art at Fairchild webpage and Events webpag.
