Cool collections at new Chihuly Garden and Glass in Seattle

Chihuly Garden and Glass opened May 21, 2012 in Seattle, Wash. Located at Seattle Center, the 1.5 acre museum-like space is filled with the art of Dale Chihuly, and includes a lush glass art-dotted garden, the impressive Glasshouse and (my favorite) the Collections Cafe, where each table is also a shadow-box filled with items taken from one of Chihuly’s vast array of personal collections.

Here’s a quick look at what you’ll see inside the galleries and out in the garden:

Ikebana and Float Boats

And here are some of the collections that are placed inside shadow-box tables in the Collections Cafe:
