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. Chihulys 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
