Watch the Chihuly Chandelier time lapse

On May 30, the Dale Chihuly team began installing the Orange Hornet Chandelier, the third Chihuly chandelier in the Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center collection. Two full days later, 384 pieces, each resembling a hornet’s nest and ranging in length of 6 inches to 3 feet, were hung. The entire chandelier measures nine feet tall, weighs just over 1,200 pounds, and resides permanently on the first floor of your FAC.
