Internationally acclaimed artist Dale Chihuly will have a free public lecture at the Institute of American Indian Arts on Sept. 27.
Chihuly will speak about some of his most iconic projects and installations, including Chihuly Over Venice and Chihuly in the Light of Jerusalem from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m. in the IAIA auditorium.
Born in 1941 in Tacoma, Wash., Chihuly was introduced to glass while studying interior design at the University of Washington. After graduating in 1965, Chihuly enrolled in the first glass program in the country at the University of Wisconsin.
He continued studies at the Rhode Island School of Design, where he later established the glass program and taught for more than a decade.
In 1968, after receiving a Fulbright Fellowship, he went to work at the glass factory in Venice. There he observed the team approach to blowing glass, which is critical to the way he works today. In 1971, Chihuly co-founded Pilchuck Glass School in Washington State.
Chihuly later came to Santa Fe, setting up a glass “hot shop” in an old barn and teaching at IAIA in 1974.
