ATLANTApix: The Nepenthes Chandelier

The Nepenthes Chandelier
Welcoming visitors and foretelling a fantastical escape from the city is The Nepenthes Chandelier (pictured here). The centerpiece of the Atlanta Botanical Garden's Hardin Visitors Center, the Dale Chihuly-created chandelier's design was inspired by the garden's carnivorous plants collection.

Originally housed in the
Fuqua Conservatory, part of a 2004 art exhibit, the Chandelier was later moved to the Visitor Center to ensure more guests have the opportunity to see its one-of-a-kind beauty.
