Chihuly

Cofounder of the Pilchuck Glass School in Washington, Dale Chihuly was awarded a Fulbright Fellowship in 1968 to work at the Venini factory in Venice, Italy. His well-known series of works include Baskets, Persians, and Seaforms, and his glass sculptures are included in over 200 museum collections worldwide. In 1995 he embarked on the international project, Chihuly Over Venice, where Chandeliers were suspended over canals and the piazze of Venice. In 1999 he mounted Chihuly in the Light of Jerusalem, an exhibition of large-scale sculptures at the Tower of David Museum of the History of Jerusalem. In 2001 the Victoria and Albert Museum, in London, curated the exhibition Chihuly at the V&A.
