Chandelier and Persians
Dale Chihuly, 1995
This nine-foot-tall glass chandelier has 900 pieces of glass in four shades of yellow. When it was installed, Dale Chihuly was about a year from creating his first exhibition, in Venice
Stop by in the evening and view it in the bay window from outside, when the chandelier really shows its stuff, because this chandelier is uniquely illuminated by neon tubes inside!
The accompanying Persians were named by Chihuly, who simply thought the name fit the shapes.
Heads up – this is a great spot for a selfie!
