Seattle’s native son (well, technically he hails from Tacoma, 35 minutes to the south of the city), Dale Chihuly will be properly honored in Seattle this spring, when the comprehensive permanent exhibit, Chihuly Garden and Glass, is slated to open its doors. The highly anticipated exhibition center will highlight some of the artist’s – revered as one of the world’s greatest glass artists, with his works showcased in 200-plus museum collections around the globe – most popular works and architectural installations, spanning his older collections to more contemporary pieces. Expect to see Chihuly's Neon and Glass Forest, a Northwest Room, a Sealife Tower, and more on display in the main gallery spaces of a 12,208 square-foot indoor pavilion.

An outdoor garden area and plaza will feature additional Chihuly works like the seven walkway Chandeliers (it’ll run along the pavilion’s edge) and the 16' diameter Sun. In addition to a store and café, yet another impressive installation, including five large Chandeliers composed of red and yellow Persians, will be on show in the 43-foot-tall Glass House structure. The precise opening date and admission fees are still pending announcement, but the center's location is set for the Seattle Center campus, situated in the heart of downtown Seattle. www.chihulygardenandglass.com
