Extraordinary work by glass luminary Dale Chihuly is shown at Museum of Glass through January 4, 2016. Creating a vibrant display, the exhibition features Chihuly’s own contemporary versions of Italian Art Deco Venetian sculptures.

Chihuly’s Venetians were developed from the inspiration he acquired while making a trip to Venice in 1988.

Returning to the U.S., he then decided to create his own versions of the classic pieces with his unique, lively twist.
