“Dale Chihuly is most frequently lauded for revolutionizing the Studio Glass movement. Chihuly's practice of using teams has led to the development of complex, multipart sculptures of dramatic beauty that place him in the leadership role of moving blown glass out of the confines of the small, precious object and into the realm of large-scale contemporary sculpture.” – Davira S. Taragin, Racine Art Museum. Suspended in the lobby of the Foothills Branch Library, The Sun and the Moon consists of over 1,000 individually hand-blown pieces of glass.
