This talk will take place on Zoom at 2 p.m. Eastern Time.

Dale Chihuly is widely regarded as the world’s greatest living artist in glass. Again and again, he has invented ways to push forward the boundaries of glass as an art form, to produce things unlike anything seen before. Art Historian Henry Adams, who has been working for the last three years on a biography of Chihuly, will describe Chihuly’s forward-pushing creative process and the ways in which his art draws on the unique properties of glass.

Henry Adams is a graduate of Harvard College, and received his M.A. and PH.D from Yale,where he received the Frances Blanshard Prize for the best doctoral dissertation in art history. The painter Andrew Wyeth described his book Eakins Revealed, as “without question the most extraordinary biography I have ever read on an artist.”
