Chihuly has the ability to generate a sense of excitement and commitment, from the artisans who are the best of the best of their craft, of being part of something bigger than the sum of its parts.

The individuals that make up the team do not define the dynamic of the team. It is really Chihuly who is the catalyst.

He does not force them to fit his schedule but instead works around their schedules and needs.

By combining his congenial ambiance found in the work atmosphere he has created and by allowing in a bit of glamor by moving these creative work sessions from site to site and flying his handpicked team, he challenges his group with crazy ideas that push and drive an intense work session. The MAP The map that Chihuly makes for the artisans to follow has become a work or art in its own right.

Chihuly needed to be able to communicate what he saw in his mind to those with whom he was working in tandem.

This started an entirely new form of art to flow from Chihuly’s brilliance - his drawings.

"Most of the drawings are quite spontaneous," Chihuly says. "I don't do much with preconceived ideas. I'll usually start a drawing with something I've done before, something I've thought about and know I can do, and then I'll just let it go from there."

These are not some measured and perfect blueprints of what he desires, but rather these drawings emanate an emotion and general fluid snap shot of what he is looking for in his next creation.

His medium of choice for this artwork is paint – bottles and tubes of paint.

He will stand over a canvas that is placed on the ground and begin his frenzied dance of whipping paint at it.

He has said that if he ever stopped to think what he was doing while putting paint to canvas, the piece would be worthless. Bringing it Home CONCLUSION In the Oklahoma City Museum of Art, one can find the most comprehensive collection worldwide of Chihuly glass.

Chihuly’s initial exhibit in OKC was in 2002.

The locals went crazy and fell madly in love with Chihuly art.

In June 2004 the Museum purchased that entire exhibition – which was a goodly size. In 2011, invited by the Wright family to exhibit in the Seattle Center in Washington

Exhibit would be on a 1.5 acre of land

Chose to re-purpose an existing exhibition hall

August 2011, broke ground

Summer of 2012 the Chihuly Garden and Glass opened

My visit in November 2012 Picture by Vivian Miles The magnificence and volume of these substantial, colorful, and poetic bodies of glass art leave one jealous and convinced that with just one good eye, Chihuly was able to sneak a glimpse into perhaps what God Himself saw as inspiration when He created our world and the heavens.
