Chrysler Museum, Norfolk, Virginia, September 29

My friend and I visited this museum the second weekend I was Richmond. Norfolk is a couple of hours from Richmond. Of course, it helps to put the correct address in Mapquest. Still, finding the museum was an experience, since we found no signs. And, while this would seem to be a major site, the people we asked at another event had no clue.

The Chrysler Museum, besides having a collection of paintings and sculpture, has a good collection of glass. It also offers a glass blowing studio and classes for blowing, fusing and lampworking. We recognized some of the artists from the Corning collection, which was interesting. The collection included some artists with whom I was familiar but whose work I didn’t find in Corning.
