Dale Chihuly is renowned for his breathtaking glass installations and fans in New York can now enjoy his art in an intimate party atmosphere with live music. A stunning Chihuly chandelier, originally at Lismore Castle in Ireland, is at the heart of the spectacular Wiener collection, which also features Chihuly’s monumental Fiori and Ikebana sculptures together with his magical Macchia designs.

The Wiener Collection also includes contemporary ceramic art from the Ardmore studio in South Africa. Their whimsical safari of animal sculptures has inspired innovative furnishing fabrics, wallpapers, and silk fashions by Hermès. Arthur’s extraordinary collection of fired arts is exhibited alongside nature’s art – murals featuring fossil fish and plants formed over 50 million years ago, which are another of his collecting passions.

Arthur Wiener is being honored as the 2018 Collector of the Year at the inaugural Hamptons Jewelry & Objets d’Art Show. Four years ago, he founded the Wiener Museum of Decorative Arts in South Florida which presents Chihuly and other modern glass artists as well as pottery and porcelain art from the 18th century to the present day. 

The museum’s educational programing includes exhibitions and special events promoting greater appreciation and understanding of the fired arts of ceramics and glass. “I want to share my love for the fired arts and leave a legacy to educate and inspire future generations about the importance of art in our lives and culture,” said Arthur Wiener.

Louise Irvine, curator and director of WMODA, will fire your imagination as she introduces Arthur Wiener and his collections during the evening.
