Chihuly Garden & Glass

Last weekend, I went to the Chihuly Garden & Glass Exhibit in Seattle. The artwork was gorgeous and it was a nice way to spend a couple of hours.

The artist is Dave Chihuly, who was born in Tacoma and grew up in the area. He has had collections on display and exhibitions throughout the US and in a few other countries around the world. He currently has exhibitions of his work in two other states outside of Washington. The exhibit in Seattle opened May 21, 2012 and does not have an end date, so if anyone is in the area I highly recommend going to the exhibit.

I took a lot of photos while at the exhibit. I really want to add all of them, but due to space I'm just going to share a few of my favorites.

This was my favorite part of the exhibit - the room with the glass ceiling. I love how the colors reflected on the walls.

This was a large room full of sculptures. It was like a fantasy land.

I love the contrast with the red/orange and blue.

Boat full of glass spheres. There was another boat next to it full of sculptures of different shapes.

These were all beautiful.

I could see the Space Needle through the roof the of the glass house.

The biggest sculpture in the exhibit.
