Description:

The Museum of Glass in Tacoma, Washington maintains a well crafted website for their spectacular museum. Founded in part by the famous glass artist Dale Chihuly, a Tacoma native, this museum highlights glass artists from the Pacific Northwest. Visitors won't want to miss any of the breathtaking online exhibits on this website, but one of the most spectacular is the "Chihuly Bridge of Glass" under the "Exhibitions & Collections" tab, in the "Outdoor Art" link. The slideshow of five photos shows a 500-foot pedestrian bridge that connects the Museum to downtown Tacoma. The bridge is composed of three distinct sections, one of which allows visitors to "experience a seemingly underwater world of glass shapes and forms a few feet above their heads." Also found under the "Exhibitions & Collections" tab, in the "Current Exhibitions" link, visitors will enjoy a multimedia treatment of the work "Glimmering Gone". Visitors can listen to poems by university students inspired by the exhibit, watch a "Residency" video of the artist who created the work, and view a video tour of the catalog for the exhibit.
