Time Out says

Fans of Dale Chihuly's works are in for a treat. The renowned American artist has brought his large-scale installations and sculptures to Gardens by the Bay. From May 1 to October 3, 25 of his magnificent pieces, as well as more than 80 pedestal sculptures and two-dimensional works, will be showcased at Gardens by the Bay’s Flower Dome, Cloud Forest and outdoor gardens.

Dale Chihuly: Glass in Bloom is the artist's first major garden exhibition in Asia, presenting visitors with a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to experience an extensive collection of the artist's creations. The works have been shipped directly from Seattle and installed on-site, marking the first exhibition of its scale to be hosted at Gardens by the Bay. The exhibition comes in three parts: Gardens & Gallery, Conservatories and Virtual Experience. 

Those familiar with Chihuly's works should definitely keep an eye out for majestic Setting Sun, and Moon, a large spherical installation that was last presented in the artist’s landmark exhibition, Chihuly in the Light of Jerusalem 2000. Visitors will see Ethereal White Persians at the Serene Garden, and Cloud Forest Persians, a study in scale and translucency which debuted in 2019 at the Royal Botanical Gardens, Kew, in London. These large-scale works, which measure up to 10 metres in height and weigh as much as 3600 kg, were curated and designed to complement the spaces within Gardens by the Bay’s Flower Dome, Cloud Forest and outdoor gardens.

“I’m thrilled to show my work in such a dynamic location in Singapore,” said Chihuly. “The natural world is an endless source for creativity, and it has been so inspiring to bring my work to life in this urban garden oasis.”
