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.
|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.
