"Dale Chihuly: Installations"
2002-03-30 until 2002-06-23
Phoenix Art Museum
Phoenix, AZ, USA

Over the past two decades, internationally acclaimed artist Dale Chihuly has created stunning visions in glass of unsurpassed scale, complexity and brilliance, revolutionizing the field. Phoenix Art Museum is proud to present the largest and most comprehensive exhibition of his work to come to Phoenix.

Installations of Chihulys work have been exhibited all over the world, yet each show is unique - a reflection of its environment and the fact that many works are comprised of multiple pieces of glass that are never assembled in exactly the same way. Before designing the show for Phoenix Art Museum, Chihuly visited the Museum and responded to its pure and sweeping spaces designed by architects Tod Williams and Billie Tsien. The result is an exhibition of his work that is experiential and breathtaking. With over 60 works, Dale Chihuly: Installations at Phoenix Art Museum includes many of Chihulyís most beloved series, including Baskets, Macchias, Ikebanas, Persians, Seaforms, Niijima Floats, Reeds, and Towers, as well as rarely seen Jerusalem Cylinders and the never before exhibited Mexican Hat Sconce.

The exhibition is organized by Phoenix Art Museum and Chihuly Studio. Support has been provided by Merrill Lynch, Menís Arts Council, Barbara Turner Hitchcock, Susan and Mark Mulzet and the Museumís Connoisseurs Circle. Promotional Support is provided by KPNX-TV Channel 12, The Arizona Republic, Dillardís, Phoenix.
