Twisted Glass!

curly

Earlier this month I availed myself of the opportunity to make the trip to Bentonville, Arkansas, to visit the Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art  . . . and their featured exhibit of the art of Dale Chihuly.  Simply marvelous.  There was an inside exhibit (in the Gallery) as well as an outdoor exhibit (in the Forest).  If you are at all interested, there are still a few weeks left to catch the gallery exhibitSteps (it runs through August 14th); the forest exhibit will continue through November 13th.

Due to the numerous pieces that were “orange,” I’m going to claim a “kindred spirit” connection to Mr. Chihuly!  I just loved the quotation on the outdoor staircase leading to the “in the forest” portion of the exhibit: “glass is the most magical of all materials.”  And, after witnessing the creativity and genius of Dale Chihuly and the representation of his art in glass, I couldn’t agree more.

    OMG! I saw a ton of Dale Chihuly’s work when I was in Seattle in Jan! He is amazing! Did you pick up any of his pieces?

    Beth, no, I did not acquire any of Chihuly’s work on my last visit to the Seattle area (but I was sorely tempted), nor did I pick up any on this recent museum visit, but perhaps someday. Alas.
