Fragile Beauty

Chihuly’s red reeds have been installed at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts (VMFA).

The color of the glass is beautiful as is the idea of the fragility of glass tubes being exposed to the outside elements.  A waitress at Muse restaurant (upstairs in the museum) mentioned that some did break during installation as is common with glass & that they have replacements in the case of others getting damaged from the weather; she added that hurricane season is near.

While it’s nice outside, go on an outing to view the beautiful installation as you enjoy a coffee or tea on the outdoor patio of the cafe downstairs.
