Chihuly Garden and Glass features a comprehensive exhibit showcasing the work of Dale Chihuly, a renowned American glass sculptor and entrepreneur. Despite the considerable technical difficulties of working with blown glass, Chihuly uses it as a primary medium for large installations and environmental artwork, some of which you can see at this gallery. The artist's complex and colorful glass sculptures fill the eight-room greenhouse. Stop by the adjacent garden to see a blend of nature and more blown-glass creations.

I absolutely loved the beautiful glass art work here. Give yourself plenty of time to walk around so you can enjoy seeing every piece. more »
Very unique opportunity to experience an expansive array of artistic glass. Friends recommended that we not miss this exhibit on our tour of the Space Needle. Reviewed several rooms filled with the glass exhibits, and outdoor exhibits in natural lighting. The magnitude of these pieces truly inspire the imagination. Loved the vivid colors on contrasting dark backgrounds. Highly recommend viewing this exhibit.
Spectacular creativity and forethought into height, texture, color of plants and glass coordination. Beautiful play of color, shadow and light. Movie shorts were fascinating about eras and themes of production. Cool seating was nice break from heat and walking. Prolific body of work. I was wowed!
