well, i saw the chihuly show the thu after it opened, but never got around to blogging about it til now. & if you haven't seen it yet—it's not traveling anywhere else—it's @the de young museum for another month. yep, i recommend it, even if you're only mildly interested in chihuly or glass. it's comprehensive: 11 galleries of 4 decades of this sculptor's work. chihuly's collection of native indian baskets and blankets alone is worth admission. just don't bother reading the museum's explanations on the gallery walls. in the meanwhile, here's a overview that might further whet your curiosity.
