Crazy garden sculpture
Best part of Seattle by far!! Dale Chihuly is a fabulous glass-blower who makes these unbelievably colorful sculptures all by hand. I'm not much into art appreciation and going to art galleries to stare at pictures of paint splattered on canvases, but give me a Chihuly exhibit any day and I will spend hours wondering around. I thought the Franklin Park Conservatory had a great Chihuly exhibit, but the size and complexity of these structures were astonishing. So, if you ever find yourself in Seattle with only $19 to spend, forget the Space Needle and head straight to the gardens next door - both the same entry price but Chihuly is way better!
