Everyone’s a Critic

posted by on April 18 at 12:46 PM

A man found several stolen glass sculptures designed by artist Dale Chihuly in a vacant lot less than a mile from where they had been taken, authorities said Wednesday.

The red glass reeds were found Tuesday in poor condition in and around a trash pile, said Detective Peter Cuervo, a spokesman for the Coral Gables Police Department. Eight reeds had been stolen from the exhibit at the Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden and authorities believe they recovered them all.

“It looks like they were just thrown and discarded,” Cuervo said.

I guess they don't recycle in Florida.

"It looks like they were just thrown and discarded."

So how do we know they were in poor condition?

Dale Chihuly = overrated

Does supervising art being made really make one an artist?

I agree Dale Chihuly is okay but putting him on an ivory tower is really pushing it. And some of his work, well how can you tell it is broken or not?
