Old Friends, Memories and Beautiful Art: Part 2


Part Two of my awesome weekend included visiting the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts to see the Chihuly exhibit. It was AMAZING!!!

For those of you who don't know of his work, Dale Chihuly is the premier contemporary glass artist, known for his innovative and colorful designs. Based in Seattle, he has revolutionized the use of glass as an art medium. See below for more pictures. Please excuse that some may be a little fuzzy, as they were taken with my iPhone.

If you ever get the chance to see a Chihuly exhibition, you NEED to see it! My pictures don't do it justice. It is one of the most amazing things I have ever seen! For more information on Dale Chihuly and his art, click here.
