  •  My first date with my wife... (6+ / 0-)

    ...back in 2004 (not counting the times we'd dated in high school) was to a Chihuly installation at the Atlanta Botanical Garden, and it was spectacular. I'd fallen in love with Chihuly years before when I'd seen a special on him on PBS, but seeing it in person was a complete revelation. I still have my ticket stub from that day under glass somewhere.

    The Borgata Casino in Atlantic City has a great collection of his chandeliers. In fact, I've been to quite a few casinos with either his sculptures or chandeliers on display.

    When we went to Seattle for a friend's wedding last year, we took a day to head to the Chihuly Gardens (which, to be honest, needed a little more in the way of "garden"--his outdoor installations are so magnificent, I'm sure with a little more acreage and collaboration with a landscaping artist, they could have made an unparalleled year-round exhibit). His studio's work is always going to have a prime spot in my heart.
