A Dallas Day: Chihuly at the Dallas Arboretum

 My good friend Kim was in town visiting from Indiana a few weeks ago.  So I decided it was a perfect time to show off the 80 degree November weather and go play tourist at the 

Dallas Arboretum

.  The popular Chihuly exhibit is still there and has been extended through December 31.

Yeah, the ceiling at the Bellagio is pretty cool, and I've seen some great Chihuly exhibits in museums. 

However

, there is something really unique about viewing these works in an outdoor environment.  When surrounded by natural, organic forms the glass spears and orbs relate in a totally  different way.

Here is my ode to all those Art History classes. Slide One....

All in all it was a day spent inside the spectrum...

For me it was a tie for favorite between the Dallas Star and the Boats.

In case you couldn't see our reflection in that last boat picture, this is what we looked like that day!
