Mille Colori

Mille Colori is an art glass chandelier by famed artist Dale Chihuly. It is a permanent installation at the Virginia Museum of Contemporary Art, located in Virginia Beach. Mille Colori is Italian and means "one thousand colors” and is estimated to weigh 2,200 to 2,500 pounds. This piece was originally entitled Isola di San Giacomo in Palude Chandelier and was installed on the beach of a small Venetian island involved in the 1996 Chihuly Over Venice project. The Rodriguez Pavilion at the MOCA was built specifically to house the renamed Mille Colori. Canon G11, 1/250 sec @ f4.0, ISO 800
