Visiting artist to talk about giant works

Artist and artisan Dale Chihuly stands under ‘The Star,’ industrial plastic turned art. Blown-glass yellow spears seem to grow straight from the rock and surround him.

Chihuly, known worldwide for his massive works of glass, will speak on his life and work at 5:30 p.m. Nov. 2 in Rackham Auditorium. This presentation will focus primarily on his recent year-long installation ‘Jerusalem 2000’ at the Tower of David Museum in Jerusalem, parts of which are shown above. Chihuly’s appearance is co-sponsored by the Museum of Art, Taubman College of Architecture and Urban Planning and the Penny W. Stamps Distinguished Visiting Artists Program at the School of Art & Design. Admission is free. Photo by Terry Rishel, courtesy of the Museum of Art


Turner celebrates International Year of Older Persons

Morris wore a hat with yellow flowers—in remembrance of her mother, who always wore a hat and whose favorite color was yellow. See complete article www.umich.edu/~urecord/8.htm.
