Bridge of Glass
The bridge takes pedestrians through a tunnel of brilliant light and color created by Chihulys glass forms.
A partnership between the Museum of Glass, legendary Studio Glass pioneer Dale Chihuly and the city of Tacoma resulted in the Chihuly Bridge of Glass, a 500-foot-long pedestrian overpass links the Museum to downtown Tacoma and its developing cultural corridor. Austin-based Arthur Andersson, architect of the Washington State History Museum, designed the bridge in close collaboration with Chihuly, who directed the artistic concept. The bridge provides a means for the internationally renowned Chihuly to contribute in a very public way to his hometown.[link]
