Pepperdine's Weisman Museum has been hosting a show since November featuring the stunning works of world-renowned glass artist Dale Chihuly. Art glass has been evolving in scope and popularity in recent years, with many emergent artists in the medium who cite Chihuly as both mentor and influence. This exhibition spans two floors of the museum, and features an installation of works that "include an overview of the many shapes and structures he developed over the years, including examples of his Persian, Tower, and Chandelier series." Though the show opened in near-tandem with two other LA Chihuly exhibits that have since closed--one at Venice's Louver and an additional exhibit at Santa Monica's Frank Lloyd Gallery--the Pepperdine show will be open for viewing through March 20th, at no charge. From small vessels to enormous shapes, these beautiful blown pieces will be sure to awe and delight.
