Dale Chihuly (born September 20, 1941), is an Americanglass sculptor and entrepreneur. His works are considered unique to the field of blown glass, “moving it into the realm of large-scale sculpture,” (Museum of Fine Arts, Boston). The technical difficulties of working with glass forms are considerable, yet Chihuly uses it as the primary medium for installations and environmental artwork.
We spent this warm sunny Sunday afternoon at the Denver Botanic Gardens that was featuring the glass work of Dale Chihuly. The Gardens should definitely be one’s must see things when visiting Colorado. CLICK HERE for the full photo collection
We ended the day dining on the outdoor area of Root Down restaurant in Denver. A wonderful kale and Brussels sprout salad followed by PEI mussels cooked in coconut red curry, white wine and Israeli couscous with scallions and fine herbs, was my choice.
We were hoping to be joined by our friend Dave, The Polish Ambasador but things didn’t pan out. The sold out concert in Denver the previous night was off the hook at they say. There was an upstairs lounge where us old timers could sit and watch everything on the big screen away from the mayhem of the club atmosphere.
