Gallery Mondays: Chihuly’s “Rose Crystal Tower”

It’s been some time since I’ve posted a Gallery Mondays (sorry!) but I’m back with one this week and I’ll try to be better at posting these more than just once a month.

For this Gallery Mondays we have the amazing 31-foot tall “Rose Crystal Tower” by Dale Chihuly. I heard about this sculpture being in Union Square since October 2017, and I had seen it once from very far away at night. However, I didn’t take a photo of it because my phone camera wasn’t capturing it well enough. When I went back to Union Square a few months later, I couldn’t find it! It took me a whole eight months after the first time I saw it to find it again. In June, I went to see Oceans 8, and as I walked toward Regal Union Square Stadium 14 I saw the sculpture and snapped a pic right away.

What I love most about Chihuly’s work is the vibrant colors he uses, and this sculpture is no exception. “Rose Crystal Tower” is made of purple-ish “polyvitro” crystals that look more pink at night when lit up. It reminds me of a piece of rock candy!

This sculpture will be at Union Square until the end of October, so go check it out if you’re nearby!
