Who Do You Love

David LeCheminant Fell Hard for Louise Nevelson

David LeCheminant was a glass artist with a decade of experience when he moved from San Francisco to Salt Lake City in 2007. He found the transition difficult — with proper studios and trained assistants in SLC in short supply — so he would return to San Francisco “to work in a proper glass blowing studio.” It was on one of those trips that he visited the newly rebuilt DeYoung Museum where there was a retrospective of Louise Nevelson. “Until that moment, I didn’t believe in love at first sight, but that exhibition changed that idea — and changed the ultimate direction of my career as an artist,” he says.
