Chihuly Outside

Series Website »
CHIHULY OUTSIDE covers nearly half a century of Dale Chihuly's epic outdoor installations. The film chronicles Chihuly's first experiments with floating glass on water and using ice and neon, his early work at Art Park in Upstate New York and his decade-long exploration of large-scale installations at 12 of the world's preeminent botanic gardens and conservatories. Among many highlights, the hour-long documentary traces the development of Mille Fiori, a 56-foot "garden of glass" first exhibited in 2008 at the DeYoung Museum in San Francisco, and his most recent work, Chihuly Garden and Glass, which opened May 2012 at the foot of Seattle's iconic Space Needle. What emerges is a portrait of an innovative artist always seeking new ways to adapt his medium to natural spaces, propelled by a desire to move, provoke and inspire viewers. CHIHULY OUTSIDE completes a trilogy of films exploring Chihuly's work, which began in 2008 with Chihuly in the Hotshop and continued with 2010's Chihuly Fire & Light.
