Created by nationally known sculptor Alex Heveri, the exhibition of glass sculptures captures the essence of flight. Included with Garden Admission.

Featured will be 15 of artist Alex Heveri’s glass and steel sculptures of gigantic insects. The sculptures are Dalle de Verre, French for “glass slab,” a technique that utilizes thick, 1-inch slabs of glass in large pieces to create the sculptures.

The exhibit, set for April 27 – October 13, will consist of 12 installations of 15 individual sculptures. Guests will marvel at the 7-foot praying mantis and the 6-foot beehive with four bees. A bamboo arch will extend over one of the garden pathways with five dragonflies perched on it. In addition, there will be an adult hummingbird and baby hummingbirds sitting on metal tree branches.

Guests will be amazed by the sparkle of the light, the realism of the pieces and the complexity of the creation of these “wings of wonder”. 

Schedule: Saturday, April 27 – Sunday, Oct. 13
