1. Dale Chihuly in New York for the Holidays
The Chihuly Holiday window at Barney’s on Madison Avenue
The Marlborough Gallery is exhibiting the sculptural glass work of artist Dale Chihuly concurrently with the holiday window installation at Barney’s flagship store. For Barney’s, Mr. Chihuly designed a signature window display in keeping with this year’s theme, “ChillinOut.” The Chihuly piece, entitled Winter Brilliance, is composed of over 700 hand-blown elements that are hung like icy chandeliers. Music and a light show accentuate the work. In addition, the Marlborough Gallery on 57th Street is exhibiting a variety of striking Chihuly one-of-a-kind glass works.
Elsewhere in New York City, you can find Chihuly’s work as permanent installations in the first floor lobby and the 35th floor restaurant at the Mandarin Oriental on East 60th Street, the Rainbow Room’s 100 foot-long frieze at Rockefeller Center, and the Persian Window at St. Peter’s Church on Lexington Avenue and 54th Street.
Dale Chihuly: Winter Exhibition will be on view at The Marlborough Gallery, 40 West 57th Street, through January 2016. Winter Brilliance will be on view in the window at Barney’s Department Store, 660 Madison Avenue, through January 3.
