Chandelier and the Monarch Window at Union Station

Now more than ever, we feel compelled to find and celebrate the good in order to stay hopeful. We are very excited to share the news with you that in late January 2017, Dale and Leslie Chihuly gifted artwork at Union Station (Tacoma, Washington) to the United States. Mayor Strickland and the representatives from the GSA and the Tacoma Art Council recognized Dale and Leslie with a certificate of appreciation, and thanked them for making this amazing body of work accessible to everyone. Dale dedicated the work in memory of his father George, his mother Viola, and his brother George.

It’s so great that Leslie and I could donate these installations to the GSA so people will forever go into that beautiful restoration and see my artwork there and the beautiful views of Mount Rainier… – Dale Chihuly

Thank you, Dale and Leslie, for your generosity and inspiration.
