On Saturday, May 17, the Clinton Presidential Center will open its next temporary exhibition, “Chihuly,” which will be on display throughout the Center until January 5, 2015.
 
The exhibition will present the artwork of renowned American artist Dale Chihuly, who will hold a lecture May 17 from 11 a.m. to 12 p.m. in the Great Hall, followed by a book-signing from 12 to 1 p.m.
 
Born in Tacoma, Washington, in 1941, Chihuly is credited with revolutionizing the Studio Glass movement and elevating the perception of the glass medium from the realm of craft to fine art. He is renowned for his ambitious architectural installations in historic cities, museums, and gardens around the world. An immersive and astounding visual presentation of color, shape, and form, this exhibition is organized by the Center in partnership with Chihuly Studio.
