Addison Pacesetter's Field Trip to Chihuly at Dallas Arboretum

By
Real Estate Agent with United Real Estate TX #0552717

Two bus loads of Addison, Texas Pacesetters (50+ years of age) spent a delightful evening at the Dallas Arboretum on May 29, 2012. We were there to see the Chihuly exhibit and hear Dan Whyms perform a tribute to Johnny Cash.

The Dallas Arboretum is located at 8525 Garland Road in Dallas and the exhibit runs through November 5th. Individual tickets are $10 (seniors) and $12 (members) to $22 (non-members) and parking is free.

On Tuesday and Thursday evenings, there are concerts on the hill inside the Arboretum. In my opinion, this is the best time to go. The gates open at 6:00 pm and the concert starts at 7:30 (7:00 in the fall). You'll have time to wander the grounds and see the 14 fantastic glass sculpture installations that Chihuly made specifically for the Dallas Arboretum, get back to your blanket or lawn chair for the concert, then on the way out, you'll see the sculptures magnificently lit, courtesy of Cirro Energy.

Here are a few photos from the Pacesetter outing:
(Hover over the picture to see the names of the glass sculptures, if I know them.)

That Chihuly makes some incredible stuff. We saw an exhibit in Florida a couple years back.

Sussie: Chihuly specifically made these glass sculptures for very specific areas of the Arboretum. Yes, there are sculptures and plants intermingled.
