A few weeks ago when we were at the KU's Spencer Museum of Art where I was resting on a bench and admiring what I thought were colorful umbrellas. My friend walks in and immediately says - "Oh look, a Dale Chiluly!" It was those same "umbrellas".
Ironic for 2 reasons:
1. I've just been poring over Chiluly's website, drooling at his fabulous glass creations, wishing I could see them in person.
2. She is an artist, too - but I'm the one working in glass and I missed what was right before my eyes. I'm sitting there looking at colorful glass and didn't even know it.
I didn't get the best picture of the "umbrellas", but I will share it anyway so you can see what I am talking about.
BTW, the boys favorite thing at the museum was a computer simulation thing - not the art.
