How do you clean a 10-foot Sunburst?
Our collection maintenance technicians, Mike McCann and Maggie Davis, carefully clean Dale Chihuly’s Sunburst sculpture once a year with a variety of tools, a chore that takes three hours. Sunburst is made up of nearly 1,000 individual pieces of glass and 100 feet of neon tubing—and weighs more than 3,000 pounds!

Thanks to Maggie and Mike, the 10-foot sculpture of yellow squiggles is once again a bright and welcoming beacon. Stop in for some free vitamin D.
