Includes Chihuly's development as a glass artist, and his relationship with the Victoria and Albert Museum, which hosted an exhibition of his work in 2001.
"Set in 2001 at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, this film follows Dale Chihuly as he fulfills his lifelong dream of exhibiting at the V&A and sets up this stunning show. The exhibition begins inside the rotunda with an extraordinary chandelier commissioned by the V&A. Moving into the Medieval Treasury, an exuberant Persian Pergola is displayed alongside a fascinating and educational survey of Chihuly's glass series and drawings. Finally, venturing outside into the Pirelli Garden, large, site-specific installations fill the grounds with vivacious colors"--Insert.
