On Wednesday, Oct. 14, the Farnsworth Art Museum will present a talk by art historian Henry Adams on internationally renowned glass artist Dale Chihuly. "To the Edge of What’s Possible: The Art and Life of Dale Chihuly with Henry Adams" will take place on Zoom from 2 to 3 p.m.

Dale Chihuly is widely regarded as the world’s greatest living artist in glass. Again and again, he has invented ways to push forward the boundaries of glass as an art form, to produce things unlike anything seen before. Art Historian Henry Adams, who has been working for the last three years on a biography of Chihuly, will describe Chihuly’s forward-pushing creative process and the ways in which his art draws on the unique properties of glass.

Adams is a graduate of Harvard College, and received his M.A. and Ph.D. from Yale, where he received the Frances Blanshard Prize for the best doctoral dissertation in art history. The painter Andrew Wyeth described his book, "Eakins Revealed," as “without question the most extraordinary biography I have ever read on an artist."

The fee for this program is $10; free to Farnsworth members. For more information or to register, please visit www.farnsworthmuseum.org.
