First and Only Opportunity to Speak With Dale Chihuly About Newest Exhibition, Chihuly At Fairchild
WHAT: World-renowned glass artist Dale Chihuly will make a rare appearance to launch his exhibition and talk to the press about his work. This is the first time Chihuly has brought his famed glass installations to the same location twice, a choice he made because of the unique and colorful background Fairchild brings to his work. Fairchild‘s Board President Bruce Greer and Director Mike Maunder also will be available for interviews.
Chihuly at Fairchild will run through May 31, 2007. This exhibition also will include sculptures by some of the world‘s most famous modern artists: Franz West, Mark Dion, Joshua Levine, Ursula von Rydingsvard, Michele Oka Doner, Daisy Youngblood and Wendy Wischer, as well as an installation by Miami‘s New World School of the Arts advanced sculpture students. Tickets can be purchased at fairchildgarden.org. Admission to Chihuly at Fairchild is $20 for adults, $15 senior citizens 65 and older, $10 for children 6-17, and free for Fairchild members and children 5 and under.
