Chihuly Garden and Glass
As part of Grandma’s birthday outing, we also visited the Chihuly Garden and Glass exhibition in Seattle. A first for myself, and… WOW!
I always thought the free viewing you get from the Space Needle and the sneak peaks from around the building were enough to, sort-of, not pay to see what was inside. I was very wrong. Had I not been with an impatient 4-year-old, I could have spent hours here. It’s one of those unbelievable spaces that makes you appreciate art and this man’s interpretation of it. Spectacular!
Noteworthy: King County dwellers get a discount. Whoo hoo! I love discounts!
An immediate wow-moment greets you just inside the doors! This “Glass Forrest” was one of my favorite pieces.
Beckett sat in this room and drew his own “Persian Ceiling”. He is an amazing, little artist. This is also where my camera died. Darn it. Thank goodness for iPhone.
I kinda want to get married all over again in this “Glasshouse”. Perfection! And, THE WEATHER!
BTW, totally not ruining this exhibit for you with these pictures. This is a must see attraction!
Awesome gift shop where you can buy your own Dale Chihuly, but be ready to drop some serious dough. Dreams of having my very own Persian Ceiling came crashing down, very swiftly. I’d settle for this cutie of an umbrella though.
