Piece by Piece: Removing the Missouri Botanical Garden’s Chihuly Chandelier

But, workers will soon demolish that building to make way for a new and improved visitor and event center. So, the chandelier had to move. And, the process of relocating it is tedious and sometimes anxiety-inducing to watch.
