The Garden Glass exhibit features over 350 individual pieces of glass, combined for display into 5 garden beds and 2 ponds. The pieces of glass art have been handmade, designed, and installed into the garden landscape by talented local artists at Hot Glass in Downtown Davenport, IA. A majority of the glass art is installed outdoors, with a feature piece in the tropical Sun Garden. This handcrafted exhibit incorporates shapes, colors, patterns, and movements that compliment and amplify the beauty of the gardens. The pieces were made with the Quad City Botanical Center's landscape as inspiration.
Garden Glass is a permanent exhibit, that will examine for quality each year and refresh as needed. For more information on Hot Glass, visit their website.
