A collection of Dale Chihuly’s Venetian glass bursts onto the scene at Museum of Glass

Dale Chihuly Gilded Mystic Blue Putti Venetian with Swan and Cherubs, 1994.

Extraordinary work by glass luminary Dale Chihuly is shown at Museum of Glass from July 25, 2015, through January 4, 2016. Creating a vibrant display, the exhibition features Chihuly’s own contemporary versions of Italian Art Deco Venetian sculptures.

Chihuly’s Venetians were developed from the inspiration he acquired while making a trip to Venice in 1988. During this trip, he visited a gallery that housed an extraordinary private collection of Venetian glass that represented the pinnacle of Venetian Art Deco. Returning to the U.S., he then decided to create his own versions of the classic pieces with his unique, lively twist. Collaborating with Pino Signoretto and Lino Tagliapietra, two of Italy’s finest glass maestros, Chihuly worked to execute his vision for these pieces.
