Bushnell Hall



Bushnell Hall is the leading hall in Hartford for music and theater.  The red glass chandelier on the right side -- "Ode to Joy" -- is by Dale Chihuly.  It is 14 feet long, eight feed wide and 2,500 pounds.   This photograph is from December 2012.  It would have been my "pedestrians crossing" photo for the April theme day if I didn't come across the opportunity for one I liked better.

Chihuly is a master designer and craftsman. I'd like to one just ONE of his pieces.

Great shot for the day and I thought I recognized the Chihuly chandelier! Beautiful!! Hope your week is going well, Jack!!

Even though I'm a huge Chihuly fan, your photo for theme day served the purpose better than this one. I'm sure it's still in the blogashere attracting attention.

Chihuly is nearly inescapable. Not that I mind much, but I'm often reminded of an artist friend's three word criticism of Chihuly: he's too easy. Some truth to that.

Beautiful. Did you get a close up of the Chihuly.

I haven't heard of Chihuly but that looks like an amazing chandelier.
