There are two permanent Chihuly works of art that on display at Frederick Meijer Gardens. Dale Chihuly, the most sought-after artist in the world working primarily in glass created a dazzling ceiling sculpture in the Taste of the Gardens Café inside Frederick Meijer Gardens. This sculpture is apply named Lena’s Garden in honor of Lena Meijer, the sculpture, comprised of dozens of individual blown-glass pieces, spans the ceiling in a spectrum of colors from cool greens, cobalt blues and purples to brilliant oranges, yellows and reds that happily run along the cafeteria ceiling to delight all who enter. When you walk out of the cafe look up and to your right. A beautiful chihuly chandelier hangs from the ceiling where natural daylight dances through the glass.
As I stood gazing at both of these magnificent pieces I imagined how hard and nerve wracking it would be to install one of these fragile works of art. Our guests who stay with us at Prairieside Suites often talk over breakfast about how much they enjoyed their afternoon over at Frederik Meijer Gardens.
