Glass art in Provo.

* April 13-September 16. Modern art often imitates objects out of the past, and that's the case with the Chihuly Baskets exhibition at the Brigham Young University Museum of Art. Seattle-based artist Dale Chihuly, who works in the medium of glass, is famous for his colorful, daring pieces. He hung his chandelier works over the canals of Venice and built Jerusalem Wall of Ice in Israel. Chihuly was inspired to create his basket series when he saw a collection of Northwest coastal Indian baskets at the Washington State Historical Society. Through the careful use of heat fluctuations and gravity, Chihuly was able to mimic, in glass, the sagging forms he saw in the traditional woven baskets. N Campus Dr., Provo, UT; (801) 378-8200.
