Seattle’s Chihuly Garden and Glass

Planning a visit to the Pacific Northwest? Seattle’s Chihuly Garden and Glass exhibit at Seattle Center is a cultural experience you definitely don’t want to miss. Positioned directly next to the infamous Space Needle, Chihuly Garden and Glass beautifully displays the work of glass-blowing genius Dale Chihuly in a series of exhibitions throughout the museum. The exhibit showcases Chihuly’s diverse talent of exquisite blown glass including pieces such as chandeliers, bowls and dishes, life size boats, and sea creatures. It even displays an entire room made up of a vibrant glass ‘garden’ filled with grass, flowers, and garden ornaments. The exhibit continues into the museum’s outdoor garden where his pieces replace live trees and flowers with his ornamental creations.

Dale Chihuly, a Washington native of Tacoma, began the art of glass blowing while studying interior design at the University of Washington in the 1960s. The artist has become world-famous for his intricate and delicate glass pieces that have been showcased in more than 200 museums around the globe as well as botanical gardens, sculpture gardens, and architectural institutions. His installation at Seattle Center opened in 2012.
