Fire Up Your Holidays
Launching November 17th and running through the winter season, Winter Brilliance will offer guests a brand-new original light and music installation. Using innovative video projection technology, this immersive installation was created to project onto the stunning Winter Brilliance exhibit, inspired by fire, ice, and the dramatic use of light. This seasonal sight serves to demonstrate Dale Chihuly’s ongoing desire to innovate and exhibit his glass art in new and different ways.
Winter Brilliance was originally created for the Barney’s New York flagship store in Manhattan in 2015 for their famous annual holiday window display. Installed at Chihuly Garden and Glass in 2021, Winter Brilliance features Chandeliers, Towers, Reeds, and Icicle Clusters - all using the icicle form. The glass installation is located in Gallery 1 and contains approximately 700 hand-blown glass forms.
The light and music component runs every day from November 17, 2022 - February 28, 2023 during regular operating hours.
“I’ve worked with ice several times throughout my career. It’s one of my favorite materials, because of the way it works with light. It inspired me to create the icicle form.” - Dale Chihuly
Opening Soon: The Bar at Chihuly Garden and Glass
The newly-imagined bar concept will offer craft cocktails and delicious bites in a one-of-a-kind atmosphere, where Dale Chihuly’s personal vintage collections and private art collection will be on display.
More details coming soon!
