Chihuly Canopy


One of the most interesting entrances to a hotel has to be at the Soho Metropolitan in the theatre district. Its entrance is topped by a canopy which includes a Dale Chihuly sculpture consisting of 80 incredible glass pieces. The canopy by the American glass master was installed in 2003 and is rumoured to have cost $500,000!. I'll post a detail shot tomorrow.

Now you are talking about something I love. Chihuly sculptures are a favorite of mine. This must be great to look up and see. I bet it's lit up at night!

The three tall sculptures that I pictured on 10/21 cost the garden 1 million dollars. He certainly commands top dollar.

Beautiful entrance. Is it lit at night?
