Luxury Atlanta hotels invite guests to indulge in overnight package inspired by internationally-acclaimed artist

ATLANTA, GA – APRIL 30, 2016 – Drawing inspiration from renowned glass sculptor Dale Chihuly, The Ritz-Carlton, Atlanta and The Ritz-Carlton, Buckhead have each curated an exclusive Chihuly in the Garden package for guests.  Chihuly returns to the Atlanta Botanical Garden this spring for the first time since 2004 for an encore exhibition of his spectacular art, showcasing his works against the impressive backdrop of the idyllic gardens and Midtown Atlanta skyline. Influences from his unmistakable glass sculptures and their return to Atlanta have been incorporated into a limited-time package debuting soon at both the downtown and Buckhead Ritz-Carlton properties.
