This summer, Crystal Bridges will open dual exhibitions by the American sculptor Dale Chihuly. Presented for the first time in an Ozark woods and in the Museum’s special exhibition galleries, it’s a world of wonder, waiting to be explored, only at Crystal Bridges.
Chihuly has been an innovator for more than 40 years, working in many media including glass, paint, plastics, neon, and ice, and always pushing their boundaries to carry out his distinctive vision. He changed the way we think about glass, stretching the medium to new realms of possibility.
Over the years his creations have become familiar around the world. He is globally renowned for his ambitious site-specific installations in public spaces, as well as exhibitions presented in museums and gardens. At Crystal Bridges, extensive indoor and outdoor installations feature new works by the artist, as well as iconic works spanning the breadth of his career.
Chihuly: In the Gallery and In the Forest will be on view in the museum’s temporary exhibition gallery and North Forest from June 3 through August 14, 2017. Once the gallery portion closes, Chihuly: In the Forest will remain on view in the Museum’s North Forest from August 16 through November 13, 2017.
