In honor of Chihuly’s impact on the American Studio Glass movement and his continuing connection to Tacoma and the Pacific Northwest, Spotlight on Dale Chihuly: Works from the Museum of Glass Permanent Collection celebrates the artistic innovation of Dale Chihuly and introduces Museum of Glass (MOG) visitors to his work by showcasing nine intimate examples his work from the Museum’s Permanent Collection, including the Gibson Chandelier, acquired from a private donor in 2013. The exhibition will provide an artistic primer for visitors to learn about Chihuly’s various series and will be accompanied by photos of the artist in MOG’s Hot Shop and by a video presentation of his ambitious Chihuly Over Venice project, which resulted in “end-of-day” chandeliers like the Gibson Chandelier. Spotlight on Dale Chihuly will also feature a “Chihuly in Tacoma” walking tour, to connect visitors to the Bridge of Glass and Union Station Courthouse.
