AAA Editor Notes
Chihuly Collection is at 400 Beach Dr. N.E. “Rose Crystal Tower,” a 20-foot-tall candy apple red sculpture, stands in front of the gallery, home to works by celebrated glass artist Dale Chihuly, whose brilliantly hued pieces are reminiscent of sea creatures and exotic flowers. Inside, the attention-grabbing “Ruby Red Icicle Chandelier” is suspended from the ceiling. Other holdings include such works as “Ikebana,” “Macchia,” “Niijima Floats” and “Persians.” A video explores Chihuly's life and techniques.
Note: The gallery will close its current location on Aug. 1, 2016, and will reopen October 2016 at 720 Central Ave.
Guided tours are available. Time: Allow 30 minutes minimum.
