Dale Chihuly: The permanent Exhibition
Dale Chihuly: The Exhibition
Third Floor, Permanent Installation
In 2002, the Oklahoma City Museum of Art inaugurated its new home at the Donald W. Reynolds Visual Arts Center with an exhibition of glass and drawings by Dale Chihuly. Bolstered by enormous public support, the Museum purchased the entire exhibition, which includes works from Chihuly’s best–known series and is anchored by the fifty-five-foot Eleanor Blake Kirkpatrick Memorial Tower in the Museum’s atrium.
Dale Chihuly’s work, principally in glass (but occasionally including such unconventional media as neon and ice), has challenged traditional distinctions between craft and art. Chihuly’s oeuvre is notable for its vibrancy of color, the boldness of its shape and execution, and, in recent years, its studied mimicry of natural forms, from cacti to seaweed and jellyfish.
