Chihuly Garden and Glass showcases the glass works of Dale Chihuly, an artist known for pushing the boundaries of glass as an art medium. The grounds include the Exhibition Hall, a Garden installation, Theater, and a Glasshouse, all located next to the Space Needle at Seattle Center.
The centerpiece of Chihuly Garden and Glass is the Glasshouse. The 40-foot tall, glass and steel structure covering 4,500 square feet of light-filled space, was created out of Chihuly’s lifelong appreciation for conservatories. The installation in the Glasshouse is an expansive 100-foot long sculpture. Made of many individual elements, it is one of Chihuly’s largest suspended works.
The Theater presents short videos on Chihuly’s working process and serves as a gathering place for lectures, educational, and community events.
