Baker Museum

Let's take a break from the galleries to see some of the interesting aspects of the museum.



There is a three-story blue glass Dale Chihuly installation in the stairwell.


And an appealing seating area in the space between the philharmonic hall and the museum.


And a corridor with a bright assemblage of Chihuly glass in the ceiling.


And, if you are lucky, you will be there on a day when the endlessly fascinating Thea is on duty.

I just hope that glass never falls down!

All that glass is stunning. Thea would be interesting to talk with, love the glasses :)

I feel that Chihuly is a genius! The pieces in this museum is spectacular.

It's amazing how we/I begin to recognise certain artists works around the world through blogging.. I knew before I read that this had to be Chihuly Jack, beautifully shown here.

The Chihuly glass is a stunner!

Chihuly certainly has talented people blowing for him! I want to straighten Thea's glasses! ;-)

Thea's portrait gives me the impression that she really is endlessly fascinating.

Great place to visit!

That portrait is a stunner. Superb. Reminds me of Richard Avedon's photos of every sort of person against a plain white backdrop, although his were B&W.

The blue Chiluly is similar to the one in the atrium entrance of the Missouri Botanical Garden. We know an artist whose view of Chihuly consists of two words: too easy. He may be right.

I love how the Chihuly looks in your second shot. And that ceiling looks very familiar. I've seen two of these here in Washington state.
Thea is probably endlessly fascinating. But those glasses are in desperate need of adjustment.

I really liked the blue installation. Very pretty!
