We expected the day to be mostly rainy. We set out at 10:00 under a mostly clear sky, rode the Link into Westlake Center, where we transferred to the Monorail to get to the Seattle Center.
The Chihuly Museum is right at the base of the Space Needle.
By the way, did you notice that sky? No rain all day. People were out playing everywhere!
We met up with our contact, picked up our tickets, found several people we knew, and entered the museum.
Dale Chihuly is a collector. In the first gallery is a collection of Indian baskets, and the glass work they inspired.
The sea life gallery features this huge installation with sea creature details.
And then the glass ceiling!
The next gallery is a garden of glass.
Chandeliers are one of Chihuly's trademarks.
Wouldn't you love to have a reception in this gallery?
From here we ventured outside to see glass in a real garden.
That will be the next post.
