a journey for photo knowledge

Dale Chihuly at Bellagio

On my first-ever trip to Las Vegas, my friends and I strolled “the Strip” taking in all the sights and sounds of Sin City. One of the nice surprises was stumbling upon the work of Dale Chihuly, an artist that works with glass sculptures. The photo below is from his installation at the Bellagio. According to his website, this installation was completed in 1998.

Several years ago, Chihuly had an exhibit of his work at the Atlanta Botanical Garden. I wish I had seen his exhibit. It was wildly popular. I had no idea who he was at the time – it was literally the week after his exhibit closed that I saw a PBS special on his work. I hope to see a full exhibit at some point. This amazing ceiling work at the Bellagio was a surprise to see – and only makes me want to see more of his work.
