During the 2019 LitWalk a couple of weeks ago, The Community Library in Ketchum officially unveiled a new arts installation, “Ulysses Cylinders,” by world-famous glass artist Dale Chihuly.
The cylinders, on display in the library’s newly renovated foyer, depict scenes and quotes from James Joyce’s famous novel “Ulysses.”
The exhibition will remain up through the end of the year and into early January, and the library plans a fair amount of programing around it. The first such event will take place this Sunday, Aug. 25, during this month’s “Suddenly Sunday”—a bonus day of open hours for the usually Monday-Saturday library.
From 2-5 p.m., the library will screen a series of short films documenting Chihuly’s personal odyssey, his artistic process and some of his most eye-catching works. The films total 84 minutes in length and will be screened on a loop.
This event, to take place in the lecture hall, is free and open to the public. Visit comlib.org for details.
