"Dale Chihuly's decades of exploring the relationship of glass and nature reach a zenith in 2002 at Chicago's historic Garfield Park Conservatory. But when did it truly begin? In Finland in 1995, or at Sleeping Lady in 1996? Or earlier, when Dale Chihuly was just a young boy in his mother's garden? The seeds for Chihuly in the Park: A Garden of Glass were sown in half dozen different nations, and this DVD explores the creative process that ultimately led to this extraordinary installation of glass in one of America's largest and oldest glasshouses. Follow behind the scenes as Chihuly and his team create and install glass sculptures among the plants at the revitalized urban conservatory. Ultimately, over 600,000 people visit what may be the perfect setting to experience Chihuly's organic work.

"If you are like me, and wish that Chihuly's exhibit never would have left Garfield Park, this is a wonderful way to keep a piece of that experience with you. That exhibit was sheer genius!"
