Dale Chihuly

Time for a bit of culture.

Dale Chihuly just blows my mind. What really freaked me out was the total lack of any Chihuly pieces on display in the Seattle Art Museum when I went there last year. Sure I know the guy lives in Tacoma, and there’s a whole museum devoted to glass art in Tacoma, but you’d think SAM would want to represent a Northwest local who figures so large in the art scene.

Anyway, here’s one of Chihuly’s latest, the Sun at Kew Gardens, which was installed in February 2005.
