This lecture will focus on two contemporary artists who work in glass as their primary material. Dale Chihuly creates large organic forms that are also considered brightly colored sculptures. He often uses his pieces in concert to create surrealistic environments through which the viewer travels. His work is featured in major collections around the world, including museums, private institutions, and even Botanical Gardens. Josiah McElheny is a contemporary glass artist who received the MacArthur Fellows Program award in 2006. His work includes recreations of historic vessels found in famous pieces of art made with from the methods of the time of its origin.
