Details

Iconic artist Dale Chihuly will once again exhibit his luminous glass artworks in our spectacular landscape, featuring pieces never seen before in the UK.

In the most biodiverse place in the world, you will see the perfect marriage of art, science and nature as Chihuly's dazzling sculptures transform our Gardens and glasshouses into a contemporary outdoor gallery space.

Unique art installations will be situated across the grounds, including the Shirley Sherwood Gallery of Botanical Art. You can experience his Drawings and Rotolo series- the most technically challenging work Chihuly has ever created- and Seaforms, undulating forms that conjure underwater life.

The celestial vibrant blue masterpiece Sapphire Star will welcome you as you walk through Victoria Gate.

In a Kew Gardens first, the Temperate House will be home to a brand new, specially designed sculpture inspired by the cathedral space it will inhabit.
