Recently we drove to Richmond, VA to the Museum of Fine Arts to attend the Chihuly Glass Exhibit. I was anxious to see it and finally made the drive to Richmond before the exhibit closed. I was both moved and inspired by these magnificent works of glass art. Today I offer you some photos….the first two are credited to the photographers in the caption. For the next few posts I will share some of the photos we took. I choose the Chihuly Exhibit as one of my early posts for a couple of reasons. One was to inspire, another to show color in all it’s glory, as the topic of color will be one of the significant parts of this blog, as it relates to nature, art, architecture, and design and so much more. Welcome ! I hope you enjoy and come back tomorrow to see some more! charisse
I have been fascinated by his art and glass work for a long time since I saw his first installation more than a decade ago. His use of color and form can appear etherial, sensuous and lively all at the same time.
