CHEYENNE, Wyo - In our monthly series with Cheyenne Botanic Gardens Tina Worthman the assistant director stopped by to talk about some events the garden is hosting.
The Cheyenne Botanic Gardens Glass Art Celebration at the Cheyenne Botanic Gardens Grand Conservatory. The show is Wyoming’s largest glass art show.

The 2018 Cheyenne Botanic Gardens Glass Art Celebration is in its 35th year, the Glass Art Show was on hiatus for a couple of years due to the construction of the new Grand Conservatory. Professional and amateur glass artists gather from around the region to exhibit their art in a tropical greenhouse setting. The public will be asked to choose their favorite art piece, and winners will be announced on February 18th.
The show offers a wonderful winter escape and allows for natural light to illuminate the incredible glass art pieces.
Also being held on Sunday the 18th will be an ikebana workshop, which is a style of Japanese art of flower arrangements, Tickets for this class are $75 and it's limited to ten people. You can purchase them online or at the gift shop at the Botanic Gardens.
