Garfield Conservatory

Boys Looking at a Bug

Boys Looking at a Bug

Garfield Park Conservatory is over 100 years old. In June of 2011 it was catastrophically damaged by a hailstorm which broke most of it’s windows. At the time of this visit temporary windows were place and restoration was continuing as donations came in. You can check them out here: . The conservatory is a great place to take kids, and we had two in tow. The yellow glass is by famous artist Dale Chihuly.

  1. Beautiful shots! I love this place, too… thanks for reminding me about it. I was there before the windows were shattered, and hearing about that almost broke my heart. It is a fantasy like space with those Chihulys!

  2. Just a small question… Did you photoshop the second photo? It’s a really great picture. I also like the two boys sitting next to each other…

    • The second shot had no major adjustments made to it.

    I love the conservatory and am glad to hear that restoration is still continuing. I was able to visit and see the Chihuly exhibition and Niki in the Park a few years ago. Your photos are lovely.

  10. This series is different from those of the past.
    I saw a picture of children for the first time in your album.
    Considerable time is necessary to watch all works of your album.
