Planning Your Visit
Behind the construction fences adorned with famous works of art, work is going on that will make the Chrysler bigger, better and more user-friendly.
While the $24 million project is in progress, our Glass Studio will remain open as will both of our Historic Houses. For an in-depth look at how our art will be out in the community throughout 2013, click here for the details on the Chrysler Museum Roadshow.
Among the highlights:
• The Glass Studio offers free public demonstrations every day at noon, and on the third Wednesday night of the month, the Studio combines music, food, beverages and glass art as a performance art.
• At the Historic Houses, the Willoughby-Baylor House has been converted into an American art gallery and the Moses Myers House will get a new glass installation in March as part of our Glass Studio Resident Artist series. There are guided talks and tours every weekend at the Moses Myers House (323 E. Freemason St.) and the Willoughby-Baylor House (601 E. Freemason St.) and you can find all the details here.
• Starting Jan. 25 our art will be on view at the Virginia Museum of Contemporary Art in Virginia Beach, and on Jan. 26, we'll open a satellite gallery in the Selden Arcade in downtown Norfolk .
