Chihuly believes that art has the power to affect how we see the world around us. With that in mind, we are pleased to share our latest Chihuly Zen 15-minute film focused on the artist’s Fiori, (Italian for "flowers"), which appear in exhibitions in both museums and gardens. Fiori demonstrates Chihuly’s penchant for organic, free-flowing forms and are often grouped together to create installations that he calls Mille Fiori, Italian for “a thousand flowers.”
This film presents Fiori as shown in exhibitions at the Groninger Museum (the Netherlands), Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew (London), the de Young Museum, and more.
