The Chrysler Museum Roadshow
The Chrysler Museum Roadshow is how we extend our art into the community while our main building is closed for renovations. The Roadshow brings you the best of the Chrysler—extraordinary art exhibitions, curatorial expertise, and engaging events for children, adults, and families. We offer some highlights below, and for a full list of activities, check out our Events Calendar. Remember, it's business as usual at the Glass Studio, and if you'd like one of our art experts to come to you for an event, click here.

The Moses Myers House
Two Added Attractions
This historic home gets two extra features for 2013. Adeline's Portal is a conceptual art installation by Beth Lipman that re-imagines the life of Adeline Myers in glass objects. Classical Traditions is a selection of works from the Chrysler collection that would have looked right at home in the house in the year 1800. There are free guided talks and tours at the home every Saturday and Sunday afternoon.
The Mobile Glass Studio
At Events All Across Hampton Roads
Our Mobile Glass Studio will be hitting the road in 2013 to share the magic of live glassblowing with audiences across Hampton Roads. The fully functional studio includes a propane-fired crucible and glory hole, an annealing kiln, and talented artists who can explain the wonders of the glassmaking process while putting on a show.
