Chihuly Bellagio Las Vegas

    Newer Older

    The spectacular glass ceiling art by Dale Chihuly in the lobby of the Bellagio in Las Vegas perhaps qualifies as one of the more over-photographed Las Vegas attractions. Nonetheless, here is my take on it. It covers 2000 square feet of ceiling space (this picture only shows a fraction of it) and is composed of more than 2000 individual hand-blown glass pieces.

      Thank you, G Ray B. Yes, if there is one thing that can be said about Chihuly's work it is that he is not shy with bright colors, and that is certainly reflected in this partial shot of his Bellagio ceiling.

      Thank you Keith - that's quite a compliment, but I guess it is nicer to view the details of the Chihuly masterpiece this way than actually being in the Bellagio lobby, where the lighting is not always good enough to bring out the best of it, you often have to fight a throng of vacationers, and looking up at it in the ceiling really strains your neck!
