Dale Chihuly: Up Close and Personal

Dale Chihuly is one of the world’s most well-known artists. His bold and colorful installations of glass sculpture have fascinated art lovers around the globe. Here you’ll learn about the highlights and developments in his career, starting with his initial glass training in 1965. In 1995 he decided to undertake the audacious project to create and install 14 chandeliers throughout the city of Venice for their 1996 Biennale. To accomplish this, he led his team and local glass workers to blow glass and create chandeliers in five different countries, which were then shipped and installed as over 10,000 glass elements throughout the ancient city. This endeavor made it clear that all things were possible for this visionary artist.
