Salk marks 50th year with Chihuly glass exhibit

A weeklong outdoor installation of the dramatically colorful glass sculptures of the world-renowned Dale Chihuly kicked off the Salk Institute’s 50th anniversary April 22-27.

Chihuly and a roster of dignitaries attended a private party to mark the occasion on April 24. At the event, William R. Brody, president of The Salk Institute for Biological Studies in La Jolla, thanked Joan and Irwin M. Jacobs for their “generous sponsorship,” which made the exhibit possible.
