SMMART ART: Dale Chihuly
We just came back from spring break, tagging along with my husband's business travel trip to Opelika, Alabama...so beautiful! We had a lovely time swimming, playing on some super-fun playgrounds (hickory dickory and monkey park), exploring the Louise Kreher Ecological Preserve, Auburn University's campus, and visiting a few museums. We were greeted by a stunning Dale Chihuly glasswork in the lobby of the Julie Collins Smith Fine Arts Museum that hung suspended from the ceiling, bathed in natural light from the skylights.
You may be lucky enough to admire a Dale Chihuly masterpiece in a museum or garden around where you live. Locals to the Salt Lake area can visit Abravenal Hall and introduce your children to his works.
