- Created May 20, 2012
Seattle, Washington]--I'm a museum lover and there is nothing better than browsing the hush, hallowed halls of a museum to banish my blues away. Well, this new museum in Seattle is sure to keep visitors enthralled with its dazzling array of exhibits. Exhibits with a difference, for these are made of handblown glass.
Nestled at the base of the City's Space Needle, the 45,000 sq. ft installation was built to showcase artist Dale Chihuly's glass creations. The exhibit, which is reportedly scheduled to open on May 21,will feature thousands of sparkling sculptures to mark the 50th anniversary of Seattle's World Fair.
The Center Garden and Glass Museum though fascinating, is not without its critics, who feared the huge structure would take away more of Seattle's open space. But those who got a sneak peek at the 'glass show' say it's a wonder to behold which just might woe critics over come Monday.
