AN AFTERNOON WITH CHIHULY AT THE DE YOUNG
The Dale Chihuly glass sculpture exhibit at the De Young Museum in San Francisco in Golden Gate Park comes to an end on September 28, 2008.
Finally, M and I got to see the exhibit which is simply amazing. In fact, it is so spectacular that this post is mostly just my photos of some of the works on display.
This exhibit is only appearing at the De Young. At least one local critic raised quite a stir by suggesting that Chihuly's glass work is not "art." I certainly beg to differ and encourage you to see the exhibit if you can. If you've already seen it, visit again.
The signage in the exhibit provides insights into the inspiration behind Chihuly's themes which include flowers, sea life, Venetian glass, and American Indian baskets and blankets. His life has worked its way into his art. Enjoy the exhibit through the my eyes...
