Exhibition of Dale Chihuly in Miami and New York

Once in 2014 in Miami, I was lucky enough to attend the unique exhibition of the blower Dale Chihuly, which took place in the Fairchild Botanical Garden. It turned my idea of what can be made from ordinary glass in case you have the skill and imagination.

The author of fairy-tale creations is a world famous artist working with the technique of blown glass Dale Chihuly has been creating unique glass masterpieces on a single metal skeleton for 40 years. This made him fame not only in the US, but throughout the world.

Chihuly was born in Seattle and in 1959 received a Bachelor of Arts degree in “Interior Design” at the University of Washington. Later he went to Italy, where he was lucky to work at the Venini blowing glass workshop.

After returning from Italy, Chihuli opened a small glass products shop and began teaching. Over the years his style has become recognizable. These are fantastically bright and beautiful glass plants of enormous size with sophisticated details and fine elaboration.

And I did not even expect that in New York I would be also lucky to visit his exhibition for the second time!

It seems to me that the Botanical Garden in the Bronx is an ideal place, because it is better to estimate the work of Dale Chihuly against the backdrop of nature that the artist’s world is inextricably connected with.

The idea of Chihuli’s cooperation with the Botanic Garden of New York is turned out to be successful. The two-year preparation ended by a grandiose exhibition of Dale Chihuly works, have been created by him for 40 years. In 2006 this joint exposition with the Botanical Garden was opened for a short while, but this time its scope was simply amazing. The benefit performance of the master with a world name let thousands of people to see the world of nature through the eyes of a glassblower. He presented as many as 20 installations located on almost a square kilometer of the garden. To see all the exhibits, the walk took a long time.

When Chikhuli’s name is heard, an atmosphere of quiet delight immediately appears around him. This man has proved that the last word in modern art has not been said yet, and the artists have something to surprise and to thrill us. The way Dale Chihuly treats glass shows both the greatness of nature and the skill of a human, as well as reveals the ability to appreciate all this beauty.

One of the Chihuly works is now installed at Union Square. And it remains only to guess how long it will be there. Because installations of contemporary artists are exhibited often just for a certain time in New York.

What I really want is that the Chihuly exhibition be made permanent in New York. It is impossible to admire his works at once. And how many people do not yet know about his creation! Therefore, if you ever have the opportunity to visit his exhibition, I heartily recommend and assure that you will receive a lot of positive emotions.
