In Seattle, the Chihuly exhibit is incredible if you like glass. http://www.chihulygardenandglass.com/

We were blown away. Go mid-afternoon so you can see it at night too.

Ish, ever since you and Anne posted about this exhibit in your trip blog, it has been on my to-do list when I next visit Seattle. It looks fantastic.
Booms,
Chihuly hasn't actually blown glass for years, his lungs are shot, but he is a visionary artist and designer. Depending on when that was made, the glass may have come from the lips of Danny Read, who for years was Chihuly's lead glass blower, has taught at the Rhode Island School of Design, is a neighbor of Lola-Jane's, and is a childhood sailing buddy. For many years his family owned the last boat personally designed and built by Nat Herreshoff, the ketch Belisarius, now at the Herreshoff Museum.

We have several of Danny's pieces in our home, if you come back to Lola's sometime, we can go by his studio and watch him work. The last time he helped me and Chris blow pieces. Watching the process is super cool.

How come nobody ever starts a thread "I'm going to be in Midland, Texas for the Holidays...."?
I know the answer. I've been to Midland.

Your boat is in Maine, and you ski in NM --- at your own place --- and you're wondering why others don't pine to visit Midland????
