These are colorful, vibrant orbs from Chihuly's "Float Boat" art installation at the Desert Botanical Gardens. If you can believe it, the Garden did not have anything printed with the names of each art installation except for small plaques placed before each exhibit so after taking photos of the glass art for two days and one night, I had to go back and walk the entire Garden to write down the name of each art installation. (Such a chore in our gorgeous Arizona weather as the temperature was about 70. ) The Garden is supposed to have a book published with the current Chihuly art installation called "Chihuly: Nature of Glass" in a year or two. So, enjoy the magnificent glass art pieces in person while you can. The art exhibition ends on May 31. This is worth coming to Arizona to see.
