Speechless Sunday Chihuly Art

Industry Observer


Yes, I first learned of Dale Chihuly here in the Rain courtesy of Roy Kelley when he had posted pictures of his work. I had seen his influence he has had in many art galleries, but did not realize it was he who influenced the glass sculptures throughout the world. Chihuly is an American artist born in Tacoma Washington. Many people do not realize that he is blind in his left due to an accident while abroad in England and he has not blown glass since 1979 when he dislocated his shoulder in a body surfing accident and hires people to do that with his vision. There currently is an exhibit in Denver at the Denver Botanic Gardens through November. I hope to be able to see the exhibit. His work is amazing I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. The picture of the sun is outside the Museum of Fine Arts in Montreal and the other one is inside the Museum.

I had never heard of Chihuly art until Roy's posting either, Yolanda.  It certainly is creative and intriguing!

Hi Yolanda, Thank you for the great read.  Dale Chihuly is a fabulous artist.  I've seen his work at the Borgata in Atlantic City.  This is a photo taken in the lobby:

His art is unmistakable. I walked into the Bellagio in Vegas and said, "Chihuly!" Their lobby ceiling is gorgeous. He visited the DE Art Museum years ago and I heard him speak. Lovely stuff!

I first learned of him here in the Rain as well. Then we went to see his art at the Dallas Arboretum. His work is AWESOME!

Hi Yolanda... We're fortunate here in the Pacific Northwest. Dale Chihuly is from Tacoma and his work is everywhere. If you're in Seattle you'll want to see the Chihuly Garden and Glass museum and also the Bridge of Glass in Tacoma.

Wow!   I can't believe that artist is blind.  I guess it explains the great textures to them though.

Oh, me, too! Changed real estate agencies, sold a bunch of properties, have three more in sale pending and just laid to rest our 23-year-old kitty. Just another month in paradise, right?!

Chihuly does some cool stuff.  I think blown glass is one of the most amazing art forms. -Kasey
