Chihuly at the Crocker
We enjoyed a visual treat when visiting the Crocker Art Museum. In a stairwell tucked between the mansion and the modern art wings, a new exhibit graces the walls.
Apparently, we were the first day that the doors opened for the public. Lining the walls above the stairs, colorful glass sculptures by Dale Chihuly catch the window light. Reflections spray across the wall with patterns and overlapping shapes like flower petals.
Such a beautiful delight as we climbed the stairs.
I'm inspired by Chihuly's art anytime I chance upon it. The way he bends color and glass is an ethereal glimpse of wonderland. Yet I don't believe that I've ever seen light play in his sculptures. And the way light cast new colors and shapes along the walls is mesmerizing. All of us, all ages, wanted to stay and appreciate the subtle changes as each step brought new perspectives. It's going to be so fun to visit and revisit to see how it looks at different times of day, during different weather, different times of year.
Welcome to the Crocker! I'm glad you're going to stay awhile :)
There are landings above and below to see the art if going up or down stairs is too much... Everyone should enjoy the exhibit.
