Around the World with Dale Chihuly

Travel educates.  Travel enlightens.  And in Dale Chihuly's world, travel inspires.

Before entering the Glass House and Garden in Seattle, the visitor must walk through a series of art galleries.  It is an excellent overview of Chihuly's vision and work. Each gallery is dedicated to one of his well-known glass genres.  It struck me as I walked through each room, that his inspiration was drawn from his travels.

Travel does this.  It creates a surge of energy upon returning home.  In an artist of Chihuly's caliber, that surge of energy means a masterpiece.

  1. So true travel does inspire, even if not to create something this magical but just to view the world through different eyes.
    On that note , we are going to Japan in mid March and I am really looking forward to it. I know you have visited , any tips would be most welcome. Many thanks, Jill.

  2. This exhibition is simply amazing! I felt very inspired walking through the rooms and garden. Thank you!
