Dale Chihuly, born locally, is an internationally renowned glass artist. In 2012, partnered with the city, he started this permanent exhibition in Seattle Center. I believe some of the works were originally made for this exhibition and others were collection from his past works. If visit Seattle center, possibly for its landmark Space Needle, you should definitely spend a couple of hours in this exhibition.
Chihuly made glass sculptures artfully and skillfully. He, and his team, could give colors and texture to the glass in a way unimaginable to me. They were luminous and lively, contrary to what one would imagine glasses should be: cold and lifeless. Lively as they are, they are also otherworldly. These are not the life forms in existence in this world. They are alien, beautiful and harmonic.
Through-out the exhibition are professional photographers. They will gladly take your pictures completely free of charge. You will receive a card with which you can retrieve your photos and have them sent to your favorite email address. This is a very cool service that all visitors should take advantage of.
