Chihuly exhibit at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts

My husband and I went to Richmond and saw the Chihuly exhibit at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts  It is a spectacular exhibit and I highly recommend if one of his exhibits comes to a museum near you that you go.  Especially if you dabble in any kind of artistic medium.  The shapes, textures, colors, etc will inspire you.  In Richmond the exhibit ends today and is also sold out but if you get the chance to travel to a museum where his work is displayed it is worth the effort to go see these large glass objects.

Inside the exhibit, we were allowed to take photos for personal use only and since I am not sure a blog is considered personal use I will not post them here.  You can view wonderful professional photographs of his work on his website.

PBS has done several TV specials showcasing his exhibits.  Check your local channel to see if one of these shows is currently running.  Also, if you have ever been to the Bellagio hotel in Las Vegas you have certainly looked up to see the beautiful glass ceiling chandelier.

  1. His work is amazing – the Bellagio was the first time I saw his work. I could have just sat there for hours looking at the different patterns and designs.
