Inspired by Chihuly

If you’ve been to the Milwaukee Art Museum, I’m sure you’ve been amazed at the glass sculpture by Dale Chihuly. Here’s a bit of information I found about it on a blog.

The first time I saw the sculpture at the museum I was blown away. Well, while in Arizona I had the delightful opportunity to visit the Desert Botanical Gardens with Evelyn, Hazel, Eddie, Joan and JoAnn

to see an exciting exhibit of Dale Chihuly’s art. It was entitled:

C-sign

What a feast for the eyes! We arrived shortly before sunset. These photos are courtesy of Evelyn because her pictures were much better than mine. They may not be as good as seeing the gardens in person, but I do hope you’ll find them inspiring non-the-less.

Whether you are a traditional quilter, a fiber artist, or anywhere in between, I’m sure you are able to appreciate the beautiful use of color and design in these photographs.
