An American Original: Dale Chihuly

I should be embarrassed to admit the first time I saw his work was on the set of TV show "Frasier" and I wasn't impressed by the vase next to Frasier's fireplace. Then I experienced an exhibit at the Seattle Convention Center and saw the installation at the Bellagio Hotel in Las Vegas and was well on the way to becoming a fan.

Maybe you will enjoy reading the Wikipedia article about him online, which lists his permanent collections, current & past exhibits along with photos and a bio. Or you might lose some time browsing his website, which includes news, photo and video galleries among many other treats.

We'll leave you with a list of some of our books and videos by or about Dale Chihuly. There is plenty more information about him and other artists to be found in our eLibrary as well. We hope you find the information about this living legend interesting and thought inspiring.
