To top off the show, "Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Gardens has acquired Dale Chihuly's glass chandelier as a permanent installation for the rotunda of its Welcome Center."

The two-tiered "Goldenrod, Teal and Citron Chandelier" was designed and created for Phipps to complement the 50-foot-high rotunda. The chandelier is part of the current exhibit.
We are in awe of his talent and use of color.
