Glass in Flight, Definitively Worth Checking this out!


Glass in Flight, the amazing new glass and steel sculpture exhibit of sparkling butterflies, dragonflies, bamboo, bees and beetles by Alex Heveri, will soon be flying on its way to the Arizona Sonora Desert Museum! This open-air “museum” of living animals is more properly a zoo, natural history museum and botanical garden, but regardless of what you call it, ASDM is the world’s best-loved and most famous showcase of everything the Sonoran Desert, from tarantulas to mountain goats and from javelinas to hawks.


The Glass in Flight exhibit, which features 24 giant insects of glittering Dalle de Verre glass set into bright, powder-coated steel frames, will be scattered around the grounds like giant jewels. Imagined and built by Tucson artist Alex Heveri, the exhibit enchants, but also calls attention to the decline of insect populations, especially pollinators, worldwide.


The Glass in Flight exhibit will open in October 2022 and run through May 2023. Call the Arizona Sonora Desert Museum at 520-883-1380 or check the website. For more information about Glass in Flight, email, To see more about Glass in Flight, go to
