Fans of glass artist, Dale Chihuly, can see three of his installations when visiting Columbus. These include:

Sun Garden Panels in Suspended Circles: Located at the Columbus Learning Center at 4555 Central Ave., Chihuly created, painted and signed each of the 32 painted plexiglass panels, each  representing one of his blown-glass forms.

Yellow Neon Chandelier: Located in the Columbus Area Visitors Center at 506 5th St., this is a chandelier consisting of 900 pieces of hand-blown glass in four shades of yellow. The piece is 9 ft. tall, 6 ft. across and weighs 1,200 lbs. It is part of the Indiana Glass Trail

Also at the Visitors Center is “Persians”, a glass sculpture made up of a common form used often by Dale Chihuly. The hand-spun glass plates are installed within the two-story bay window surrounding the open staircase between the first and second floors. The Persians were a gift from J. Irwin and Xenia Miller in 1995.
