But MP guests Diane and Len, here last weekend, had Lewis Ginter on their itinerary and returned from that visit calling the Hans Godo Fräbel exhibition another glass “must see.”
Created exclusively for Lewis Ginter Botanical Gardens, “Glorious Glass in the Garden” is an infusion of some 200 exquisite glass sculptures - some botanical, some whimsy, some otherwordly - among the flora and fauna of the gardens, creations by world-renowned flame-work artist Hans Godo Fräbel.
Several sculptures were made especially for Lewis Ginter Gardens, including a fountain sculpture of his notorious “Longfellows,” elongated figures with exaggerated extremities and stretched torsos. The new “High-Wheeling Longfellows” pays homage to Lewis Ginter's origins in the 1800’s as the Lakeside Wheel Club.
Cited as "one of Richmond's most-visited attractions," open year-round, Diane called Lewis Ginter Botanical Gardens “the nicest” she has visited. After his initial visit, Fräbel is to have said the same. “Lewis Ginter is just a gorgeous botanical garden and I am proud and honored to showcase my work in this beautiful setting.”
