Periwinkle paced back and forth in front of the Teleportation Tunnel. She hoped Stinky wasn't late because they were going to head out in the Tunnel when he arrived. Soon she heard the familiar WOOSH and he popped out. After a quick whisker kiss and paw pat, she took his paw and they headed to their destination.
"Wow, this is amazing" said Stinky when they arrived.
Paw in Paw, they entered the building.
Moving along, they ooohed and ahhed at the spectacular glass creations. They stopped to learn about the Persian Wall.
They took a Selfie by the colorful glass exhibition of the Rainbow Sea.
Before she could stop him, Stinky jumped into one of them.
As always, Periwinkle had researched the Collection. "The CHIHULY COLLECTION is a stunning, permanent collection of world-renowned artist Dale Chihuly’s unique artwork. This presentation is unique as it is the first installation of Chihuly art in a building designed specifically for that purpose. Designed so that the art and architecture work together to create a visitor experience unlike any other exhibition of Chihuly’s art. The Collection is marked at the entrance by an iconic 20-foot sculpture created especially for the site.
The lady twirling the glass asked Periwinkle to come up closer too.
Walking along Periwinkle told Stinky more about Chihuly "A pioneer of the studio glass movement, Chihuly is credited with transforming the methods of creating glass art and thereby leading the development of complex, multi-part glass sculptures and environmental art. However, his contributions extend well beyond the boundaries of the studio glass movement and even the field of glass: his achievements have influenced contemporary art in general.
Over the years the artist has created a number of memorable installations including “Chihuly Over Venice” with the sculptures installed over the canals and piazze; “Chihuly in the Light of Jerusalem”, attended by more than one million visitors, and the “Chihuly Bridge of Glass” in Tacoma, Washington.
Each piece was incredible...
There were lots of pretty sculptures...
They stopped to read a poster that told them more about Chihuly...
Soon it was time for them to head back to Periwinkle's house. After a quick snack, some whisker kisses and visiting with Periwinkle's fursibs and Mom, Stinky got back into the Teleportation Tunnel and headed home. Periwinkle smiled to herself and settled down for a nap to dream of her handsome boyfriend.
Periwinkle and Stinky picked out some videos for you to watch to learn more...
