Art Glass: Antidote for the Winter Doldrums


It's dark and rainy this morning. I was looking through my travel photos and realized that visiting a place where art glass brightens even the dullest day would be a great idea for this weekend. So how about Tacoma?

Glass art graces the walls at the Hotel Murano
The brilliance of Tacoma’s art glass scene brings light and life to the winter. Start your experience of color and light with a stay at the chic boutique Hotel Murano featuring a museum-worthy collection of glass art from around the world.  Take an elevator ride and stop to see the glass art on every floor.
 
The amazing Bridge of Glass is lighted at dusk.

This is just one section of hand blown art.

Exit through the wall of shimmering aqua glass for a quick walk to encounter world-class art glass, much of it created by Tacoma native, Dale Chihuly. You’ll be entranced by the Chihuly Bridge of Glass, a 500-foot-long pedestrian overpass that leads to the Museum of Glass. The bridge is a museum in itself housing 2,364 Chihuly blown glass objects forming a brilliant ceiling that is a magical draw after dark.

October is Arts Month in Tacoma, Washington. You have a few days left to enjoy the creativity and the color.
