A Tale of Two Dale Chihuly’s – Part 3

Art is not only beautiful, it inspires. Research has proven that an arts education helps develop critical thinking skills.

A Teacher's Reflections

In Part 1, I discovered my first Dale Chihuly at the National Liberty Museum in Philadelphia.  In Part 2, I read aloud the poetry book my classroom wrote, inspired by the museum.

A recent update: the museum is planning a new Peace exhibit in March.  They have asked for my classroom books to be part of the exhibit.  Nice!

Part 3
My second Dale Chihuly is at the Huntington Museum of Art, in Huntington, West Virginia.  It stands over ten feet high with 352 hand blown glass pieces, and is housed in their conservatory under a glass canopy, standing in a pond of water.  This beautiful art glass is titled, “The Huntington Museum of Art Tower.”

I was born and raised in Huntington, yet I did not see this magnificent glass structure until many years later, as it was constructed in 2006, decades after I married and moved away.
