Dale Chihuly center countdown begins

Chihuly Garden and Glass — an indoor/outdoor showcase of artworks by Dale Chihuly — is ramping up its publicity arm in anticipation of an April 2012 opening at Seattle Center. Today we heard from public relations manager April Matson, who promised to keep us abreast of construction in and around the old Fun Forest site.

If you’re just catching up, the Chihuly center was the winning proposal (out of eight) for a 1.5-acre parcel of land at the foot of the Space Needle. It will be paid for with private funds and admission will be charged. Plans call for an indoor gallery; a see-through glass structure housing several large-scale installations; a gift shop; and an outdoor garden studded with works by the Tacoma-born artist. A rendering is above, and more information can be found on the new Chihuly Garden and Glass website.
