SPRING & SUMMER 2014 EVENTS AT DESERT BOTANICAL GARDEN

The Saguaro Initiative Celebrating 75 Years of Research, Conservation and Inspiration The dream for a botanical garden in Phoenix began with plantsman Gustaf Starck and philanthropist Gertrude Divine Webster. These individuals joined forces to create a garden that showcased and protected the beauty of the Sonoran Desert for future generations. Their vision came to life when the Desert Botanical Garden opened to the public in 1939.

Now through May 18, 2014 Three time periods per day: 8 a.m. – Noon | 12 – 4 p.m. | 4 – 8 p.m. Chihuly After Dark: 8 p.m. – Midnight | March 1, 8, 15, 22 and 29, April 5, 12 and 19 Born in 1941 in Tacoma, Washington, Dale Chihuly was introduced to glass while studying interior design at the University of Washington. After graduating in 1965, Chihuly enrolled in the first glass program in the country, at the University of Wisconsin. He continued his studies at the Rhode Island School of Design (RISD), where he later established the glass program and taught for more than a decade. In 1968, after receiving a Fulbright Fellowship, he went to work at the Venini glass factory in Venice. There he observed the team approach to blowing glass, which is critical to the way he works today. In 1971, Chihuly cofounded Pilchuck Glass School in Washington. With this international glass center, Chihuly has led the avant-garde in the development of glass as a fine art. His work is included in more than 200 museum collections worldwide. He has been the recipient of many awards, including twelve honorary doctorates and two fellowships from the National Endowment for the Arts. In 1999, Chihuly started an ambitious exhibition, Chihuly in the Light of Jerusalem; more than 1 million visitors attended the Tower of David Museum to view his installations. In 2001, the Victoria and Albert Museum in London curated the exhibition Chihuly at the V&A. Chihuly’s lifelong fascination for glasshouses has grown into a series of exhibitions within botanical settings. His Garden Cycle began in 2001 at the Garfield Park Conservatory in Chicago. Chihuly exhibited at the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew in London in 2005. Other major exhibition venues include the de Young Museum in San Francisco in 2008, the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston in 2011, the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts in 2012, and the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts in 2013. Chihuly Garden and Glass opened at Seattle Center in 2012.

Over the years, the Garden grew and gained national recognition as a champion of plant conservation, a pioneer in the care and display of desert plants, an innovator in life-long education, and a respected leader in Sonoran Desert research. Through inspiring leadership and investments from our community the Garden has become, as Gertrude and Gustaf hoped, a compelling destination unlike any other. Today, we celebrate the Garden’s 75th Anniversary with The Saguaro Initiative – an $18 million plan to invest in the Garden as a research institution, to take a stronger regional leadership role in conservation, and to create exciting new educational programming and exhibits that inform and inspire. We invite you to express support for the Garden with a contribution to The Saguaro Initiative. Each gift brings the Garden closer to fulfilling these bold plans for the future. Join us as a founder of the Garden’s future! For more information about The Saguaro Initiative, please visit http://saguaroinitiative.dbg.org or contact the Garden’s development office at 480 481.8160 to request a printed copy of The Saguaro Initiative plans.
