Foothills Art Center – Golden, Colorado

Chihuly Exhibit Extended


The ticket says Chihuly Venetians through June 30, 2012. Golden’s Foothills Art Center has hosted the Stroemple collection of Dale Chihuly’s dramatic art glass since early April. Those who have missed this special show have a second chance until July 15th.


We’ve sought out Chihuly works and exhibits in West Palm Beach, Tacoma, Oklahoma City, Loveland, Spokane, Albuquerque, Phoenix and Colorado Springs so couldn’t miss this one much closer to home.


Even though the Venetians are not quite my favorites of Chihuly’s series, visiting the Foothills Art Center show proved enlightening and inspiring. Fascinated after watching the creation process on the 18-minute, continuously looping, video I felt compelled to walk through the exhibit a second time, appreciating the incredible artistry, detail and skill.


The Laguna Murano Chandelier with over 1500 separate glass pieces arranged in five elements highlights the exhibition.


Colorado citizens and visitors are fortunate to have two more weeks to see Chihuly Venetians.
