Product Description

Visitors to the exhibition Chihuly at the de Young witnessed the working relationship between Dale Chihuly and his studio team. This film captures the artist's belief in the importance of a collaborative team and the significance this interaction plays in exhibition preparation. Chihuly at the de Young took more than two years to plan, create, and execute making it Chihuly's most ambitious exhibition to date. It was comprised of 13 installations, requiring more than 1,000 boxes transported by six semi-trucks. In the end, more than 400,000 people viewed the exhibition over a fifteen-week period, resulting in record attendance numbers for both the institution and the artist. From Seattle to San Francisco, Chihuly's lifelong goal of bringing glass artwork to a broader audience moved a new level. Open this two-part set to reveal a DVD and book. The small hardcover contains a 144-page book with an essay by Thomas Hoving, author and former director of the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
