Biltmore to Host New Exhibit of Chihuly Glass Sculptures in 2018

Chihuly at Biltmore, a new exhibition opening in 2018, will feature multi-media artist Dale Chihuly’s monumental glass sculptures set throughout areas of Biltmore House, gardens, and grounds. The exhibition runs May 17, 2018, through Oct. 7, 2018.

Chihuly’s sculptures will reside in the Winter Garden of Biltmore House, and throughout the estate, including the Italian Garden and Walled Garden.

Chihuly’s work has been exhibited at famous locations across the U.S., including the Atlanta Botanical Gardens, but this is the first time this breathtaking work will appear at Biltmore.

As part of the exhibition, Biltmore will host an evening experience in the gardens that will offer views of the sculptures after dark. Chihuly Nights at Biltmore will take place each Thursday through Sunday night during the exhibition.

Daytime admission to Chihuly at Biltmore is included with the general admission ticket. Admission to Chihuly Nights at Biltmore requires a separate ticket. Tickets are available at www.biltmore.com/chihuly.
