Dale Chihuly’s Seattle Colors

Glass sculptor Dale Chihuly’s new exhibition center beneath Seattle’s Space Needle has generated exceptional color images over the last 10 days.  The 45,000-square-foot Garden and Glass Museum is a permanent home for the work of the controversial American artist.   You can read more about the museum here and reviews are all over the web.  I just thought the photos surrounding the opening were worth having a look.

  1. I LOVE Chihuly! I posted on this when “he” was in Grand Rapids at the Frederick Meijer Gardens. The first time I saw his work I sat on the floor in the hall under one of those lily-pad ceilings and didn’t want to leave. What a wonderful experience — if you have the chance to see his stuff live, DO NOT PASS IT UP!!!


    • It sounds like you’ve seen them live. I want to do that. (I want to do so many of the artists I post. But even if I only get to see a fraction, that’s pretty good)


  2. This exhibit was at the Boston MFA this time last year. It caused quite a stir– huge lines to get into the MFA at all times of day, every day of the week. Definitely one of the best exhibits in recent memory. It’s very beautiful.
