Chihuly at the Dallas Arboretum

Dallas, Texas
Project Description

A unique, stunning art exhibit, created by renowned glassblower Dale Chihuly, is displayed at the Dallas Arboretum. HKS Structural Engineering worked with the Chihuly Studio, Dallas Arboretum, and The Beck Group to provide specialized concealed sub-structures to support the delicate glass art exhibits on display. Chihuly is a Seattle-based sculptor working primarily in hand-blown glass pieces. His work can be found around the country, including a display in HKS Dallas' main lobby. Some of his notable permanent exhibits include the "Hart Window" at the Dallas Museum of Art, the "Fiori di Como" at the Bellagio Hotel in Las Vegas, and his largest permanent collection, located at the Oklahoma City Museum of Art.
