So I had seen several of my friends post photos from Chihuly on Facebook and was amazed each time I saw them. I knew that the next time I went to Seattle, it was a must-go attraction. Unfortunately, for Sheepie who hadn’t seen any photos needed some convincing from me that the $20 admission was going to be worth it. I even said I would go alone and he could wander around outside. LOL. It turns out that he was pretty amazed and loved the place – and he’s a hard to impress guy.
As you can see, lots of great, colourful glass – fantastic for taking photos (but don’t forget to admire them with your own eyes too!). I’d never seen anything like it with glass – the use of colours, light and the scale! Each room you walked into never failed to amaze you.
If you have time, there is a small theatre that shows a film of how the glass are made, including interviews with Chihuly himself.
The exhibit does not end just indoors. Go out into the ‘garden’ to see the glass pieces integrated into the environment. With the lit Space Needle in the background, it’s a beautiful and awing experience.
A must see in Seattle!!!
Entrance to Chihuly
Nothing like it elsewhere…Take home your own Chihuly glass! Ummm…if you have $5000 each for these small approx 10 inches glass work.
Every year the students of the Illustration & Design program (IDEA) at Capilano University run the fund-raising project called “Reflections” in which the students manage the entire project from exhibiting their paintings, to the design, production, marketing and distribution the products.
Each student paints a well-known scenery of the Lower Mainland. 13 of these are chosen to go in the 2013 calendar ($18 CAD). The rest are made into greeting cards and such.
