Handle with care: Dale Chihuly artist team moves new exhibit onto Biltmore Estate

Famed American artist Dale Chihuly’s collection has come to Asheville, and all hands are on deck to prepare the special exhibition, “Chihuly at Biltmore,” ahead of the March 25 public debut at Biltmore Estate.

Installation collaboration

Travis Tatham, Biltmore’s director of destination entertainment and events, said the exhibition will allow guests to view an array of Chihuly’s techniques and works from his 60-year career.

Curating a collection

Leading up to opening day, multiple team members worked to install a large-scale drawing panel-by-panel to cover a gallery wall. Pieces from the artist’s soft cylinder series, created from about 2011 to 2015, will be displayed on pedestals.
