Chihuly Unveiled: A Celebration at the Flint Institute of Arts
FLINT, MI.- The FIA will host a celebration to unveil the installation of the Flint Institute of Arts Persian Chandelier on Saturday, June 6 from 7 to 11pm. The Chandelier was created by world renowned artist Dale Chihuly as a commission to the permanent collection. The 10' by 13' "chandelier" is comprised of 128 individually blown colorful glass elements and will hang in the FIA's lobby.

This one-of-a-kind party under glass will feature hors d'oeuvres, cocktails, and a strolling dinner. Guests will be entertained throughout the evening with live music, aerial/acrobatic performers, human statues, jugglers, stilt walkers and more. Tickets for the party are $100.00 per person. The proceeds will support programs at the Flint Institute of Arts.

In conjunction with the celebration, the FIA will present two glass exhibitions - Chihuly: Seaforms and Blown Away: International Glass of the 21st Century.
