Hot words from the Chrysler Museum of Art Glass Studio! One of the unexpected treats of our visit to the Chrysler Museum was visiting their free standing glass studio adjacent to the museum's main building.

Art A Mile High

A visit to the mile-high city of Denver is one which will enlighten you to a city's approach to public art and the art scene it supports. Some urban areas do very little artistically and yet Denver rarely misses a chance to showcase creativity with examples never hard to find.

The Artist's Perspective

As we wind down 2014 and another year passes, this is the time of year I really start looking closely at the next year and what I want from it. As an artist, one thing I always intend is for creative longevity and happiness. This, by the way, is not just about working a long time, but rather to be creatively expressing myself a long time and so far, so good.

Creativity though, is both a learning process and an evolutionary one.

When most of the nation, if not the world, hears the word Chrysler, it thinks of one thing - automobiles.  But anywhere near the naval city of Norfolk, Virginia they think about their priceless gem, the Chrysler Museum of Art.  It is, therefore, sort of ironic, that I’m an artist and writer whose father happened to have worked at a Chrysler dealership, I owned a 1965 Chrysler 300 and one of my closest friends is a retired engineer for Chrysler

Mark Lewis, Conservator

If Walter Chrysler Jr. was the parent of his collection, my host Mark Lewis, is certainly the one caring for his children! As the museum's conservator for the last 14 years, it's Mark's roll to see that which Chrysler assembled, remains clean, intact and preserved.
