I've been compiling a list of places I hope to see over at Pinterest (check it out).
One of the places I'm excited about visiting is Tacoma, Washington, if only for the chance to visit the Tacoma Art Museum for one Dale Chihuly. I became aware of this artist when I visited Las Vegas's Bellagio and witnessed the most amazing and beautiful ceiling sculpture:
The Tacoma Art Museum has the largest permanent collection of Chihuly's glass work. Chihuly was born in Tacoma and continues to gift the museum with his work.
Several of Chihuly's work can be seen for free throughout Tacoma. The most significant is his Bridge of Glass which leads to The Museum of Glass. The Seaform Pavilion section of the bridge has over 2300 pieces of his glass sculptures seemingly suspended over the walkway.
