New York-based James Carpenter will be the Visiting Artist at Museum of Glass Wednesday, October 23 through Sunday, October 27.
Carpenter studied architecture and sculpture at the Rhode Island School of Design, where he collaborated with Dale Chihuly. Between 1972 and 1982 he also worked as a consultant at Corning Glass Works developing new glass materials aimed at potential architectural applications.
Carpenter's work includes the Dichroic Light Field at Lincoln Square in New York City (1994-95) and Luminous Threshold, a sequence of five 23-meter-tall “misting masts” that formed the entryway to the 2000 Olympic Games in Sydney, Australia.
Carpenter's residency is funded through Fuel Their Fire 2013 and will conclude with a lecture on Sunday, October 27 at 2:00 pm.
