Movie Info

The 'Chihuly' of the title is in fact Tacoma-born artist Dale Chihuly, a maverick sculptor glass-blower noted for his ability to continue to work effectively despite two enormous handicaps: the loss of one eye from a severe automobile accident, and the loss of movement in one shoulder from a surfing incident. In response to these setbacks, Chihuly transitioned by necessity from creating art with his own two hands, to orchestrating a team of artists who routinely work for him. This documentary observes Chihuly in his studio as he coordinates his team and puts together the most ambitious creation of his life, eventually mounted at the de Young Museum in San Francisco, California. That exhibit made history by drawing around 400,000 visitors over a period of 15 weeks, making it the most popular site in the museum's history and the most visited artwork of Chihuly's long career.
