The new fall catalog of the Art Institute of Chicago Museum Shop is now out, and you can see my Conversation Pieces™ for sale there. Page 33. I’m very excited about that.
These are glass cartoon word balloons handblown by me in the Portland glass studio. You can write whatever you want on the word balloons, with a dry erase marker, which comes off easily with any clean cloth.
The Conversation Pieces™have been available since June in the Museum Shop, to coincide with the Roy Lichtenstein exhibit that is going on there. I’m now glad that they are available to anyone, even if you can’t make it to Chicago to see the exhibit.
This is great. To coincide with their Roy Lichtenstein exhibit in May, the Museum Shop of the Art Institute of Chicago will begin selling my glass word balloons, the Conversation Pieces™. They’ll be the blank word balloons pictured here that you can write, draw, and doodle whatever you like.
So, tomorrow I go into the studio and start making 50 of these. Yeah, That’s a lot. It’ll take a couple of days, for sure. But I’m psyched.
If you’re in Chicago in May, stop in for the exhibit, of course, but also make sure you see the Museum Shop.
