Chihuly Banner

Wrapped in Tradition is a traveling exhibit organized by Chihuly Studio of Seattle, Washington and is on display through August 18, 2007 in the Thomas E. and Emilyne Weed Anding Traveling Exhibit Gallery.

The exhibition features 15 glass "Blanket Cylinders" by Dale Chihuly, who was first inspired by Navajo handmade textiles, and then began to collect machine-produced blankets made for European-American Indian trade. Today, Chihuly is known as a pioneer of American Studio Glass as well as for being a contemporary artist who creates monumental glass sculpture and environments. Pieces on loan from other museums and private collectors will also be on display. Don't miss this exciting, new exhibit! Click here to learn more!
