Chihuly in the Desert
Taliesin West 12621 N Frank Lloy
Description

Dale Chihuly makes a dramatic return to the Sonoran Desert on Dec. 3 with a stunning new exhibition at one of Arizona\'s most iconic venues, Frank Lloyd Wright’s Taliesin West. Combining art, architecture and nature, Chihuly in the Desert, is set against majestic saguaros, landmark buildings and striking Papago buttes. Chihuly’s masterpieces stun from day to night as color, light and form come alive. Tickets go on sale to the public starting Oct. 4 for the exhibition that runs from Dec. 3, 2021 through June 19, 2022. At Taliesin West, installations will be seen inside the building, on the lawns, floating on the water, and emerging from the desert itself. Each installation is a rich dialogue between Wright and Chihuly, pairing the work of two masters in a way that has never been done before. The Desert Laboratory of Wright’s Taliesin West is an ideal backdrop for exploring the elements and principles of design, present in both Chihuly’s sculptures and Wright’s architecture.
