Glass in the Garden, a unique exhibition of the glass art of Dale Chihuly, ended its eight-month run at the Missouri Botanical Garden on January 1, 2007. The exhibition drew 950,000 visitors and helped increase overall attendance to 1.2 million and membership to a record 41,000 in 2006. The Missouri Botanical Garden wishes to thank everyone associated with this unparalleled event, and especially lead sponsor Emerson.

Blue Chandelier, year-round in the Ridgway Center
• Sunset Herons, year-round in the Climatron conservatory
• Walla Wallas, seasonally in the central reflecting pools
