The Tyler Museum of Art continues its 45th anniversary celebration by offering a new take on one of the most celebrated artists ever to exhibit at the venue. “Chihuly: Works from Texas Collections,” an exhibition spotlighting the broad scope of glass master Dale Chihuly’s artistic vision and impact over a 40-year career, opens to the public Sunday, Feb. 7 and continues through May 15 at the TMA, 1300 S. Mahon Ave. on the Tyler Junior College main campus.
Rather than focusing on a single series – as when the TMA presented the popular “Chihuly Baskets” in 2001-2002 – “Works from Texas Collections” runs the spectrum from the early 1980s to the present decade, highlighting the wide range of Chihuly works held in local private collections and public institutions throughout the including the Art Museum of Southeast Texas in Beaumont, Art Museum of South Texas in Corpus Christi, Dallas Museum of Art, Museum of Fine Arts Houston, The Contemporary Austin, and the UT Tyler Cowan Center.
Support for “Chihuly: Works from Texas Collections” is provided by Underwriter Sponsor Eleanor Cameron, Benefactor Sponsors The Art Alliance for Contemporary Glass, Austin Bank, Dr. Laura O’Halloran and Mr. Kevin O’Halloran, and Marilyn Richey; Patron Sponsors Juls Restaurant/Enviro-Care Inc. and Mrs. Norman Shtofman; Collectors’ Circle Platinum Sponsors The Robert M.
