A world famous glass artist - Chihuli - chose to locate his museum in Tacoma. Not to be missed!
I absolutely love the marvel of glass-making, and watching the craftsmen could absorb hours. I also like the more traditional look of beauty for art. These were interesting examples of excellent skill, but designs not pleasing to my elderly eyes. Outside, the Chihuly Bridge of Glass was my favorite thing.
