Luminous explores the studio glass movement that has found international prominence
in the Pacific Northwest. In partnership with the Museum of Glass in Tacoma, the MAC presents an exhibition featuring works by thirty-three internationally renowned studio glass artists including Dale Chihuly, Preston Singletary, and Lino Tagliapietra.
Chihuly has been a leader in the studio glass movement for five decades, exploring new and old techniques and pushing the boundaries of contemporary art. Inspired by the world around him, he creates statements using color and form to capture the imagination and move beyond conventional ideas of function and beauty. His work is included in over 200 museum collections worldwide and he has been the recipient of multiple awards, including two fellowships from the National Endowment for the Arts. Note the museum is closed Mondays.
