Artist Chihuly to lecture at IAIA

........................................................................................................................................................................................

Internationally acclaimed glass artist Dale Chihuly will present a free public lecture at the Institute of American Indian Arts on Sept. 27.

Chihuly will speak about some of his most iconic projects and installations, including Chihuly Over Venice and Chihuly in the Light of Jerusalem from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m. in the IAIA auditorium.

Chihuly came to Santa Fe in 1974, setting up a glass “hot shop” in an old barn and teaching at IAIA. His time there inspired one of his series, the Navajo Blanket Cylinders. He continues to support IAIA with art donations for its annual Benefit Dinner and Auction.

Chihuly, who is credited with revolutionizing the Studio Glass movement and elevating glass from craft to fine art, has work in more than 200 museum collections worldwide. A native of Tacoma, Wash., he lives in the Seattle area.
