Chihuly Workshop and Abrams Books announce the release of their latest collaboration, Chihuly and Architecture. The large-format publication is available at select bookstores, distributors, museum shops, boutiques, galleries, and online. In commemoration of the artist’s milestone 80th birthday later this year, Chihuly and Architecture celebrates four decades of Dale Chihuly’s spectacular site–specific glass installations. They are captured in this book examining architectural commissions, temporary art installations, and museum exhibitions. An exploration of entire rooms and galleries, glasshouses and castles, and travels from the canals of Venice, Italy, to the Citadel in the Old City of Jerusalem, Israel, the book provides rare insight into Chihuly’s inspiration and global footprint.
The essayist, Eleanor Heartney, is an art critic and author of numerous books and articles about contemporary art. Chihuly is an American artist noted for revolutionizing the studio glass movement and elevating perceptions of the glass medium. His work is included in more than 200 museum collections worldwide.
