Springfield Art Museum Renovations


Chihuly Addition Coming Soon!

Recently we were asked to partner with the Springfield Art Museum  to provide a more creative entry space which will eventually be home to an exclusive Chihuly piece. This project renovated the existing reception desk, previously located at the center of the lobby, to make room for the Chihuly installation. The exquisite sculpture is called, Autumn Persian and Feather Chandelier and will be on permanent display to greet patrons from their first step into the museum.

Along with the lobby, a spare room adjacent to the main gathering space was renovated into a new kitchenette to serve guests as they explore the rest of the exhibits. We are excited to see the finished product and can’t wait to see the world class artwork of Chihuly here in Springfield, Missouri. The Springfield Art Museum hopes the addition will serve to further elevate the cultural and artistic profile of our community and serve as a point of public pride. Most importantly, serve as a fitting tribute to Elizabeth Burgess’ memory and legacy of philanthropy. Burgess’ estate bequest made the acquisition possible.

Chihuly’s work has garnered buzz in the Ozarks due to the current display at Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art in Bentonville, AR. The collection spans both the gallery and fills nearby woods with breathtaking large scale displays.
