Chihuly Garden and Glass Annual Anniversary Scholarship Award

Chihuly Garden and Glass Annual Anniversary Scholarship Award

In celebration of its anniversary, Chihuly Garden and Glass will partner with Chihuly Studio to award a $10,000 scholarship to an emerging artist interested in the medium of glass.

The Pacific Northwest is recognized as a global center for glass art. Chihuly Garden and Glass and Chihuly Studio are proud to support local artists who are interested in furthering their education in the medium of glass through this annual scholarship. Since its opening, Chihuly Garden and Glass has celebrated the vibrancy of arts in its community and this scholarship is one of the ways the exhibition continues that tradition.

Up to twenty-five percent of the scholarship can be used for materials. The remainder of the funds will be directed toward attending Pilchuck Glass School and/or Pratt Fine Arts Center—two leading glass art organizations that will provide the recipient with valuable educational resources and training. Each applicant will be reviewed by a committee of local art professionals who will collectively identify which applicant would most benefit from the scholarship based on the content included in their application. The scholarship funds will be available from June 1, 2019 through September 30, 2020.

One of the High­lights of our Seat­tle Trip”

None of us were set to go up the Space Needle, so we purchased tickets for Chihuly by itself, about $23 each person. Well worth it. Talk about Photo opportunities! The museum was better than I expected and so glad we planned the tour at dusk, so the lighted glass exhibits and garden outside was even more spectacular. It's a small (which was good for those that can't walk to much) but serene and pretty museum.

Worth Going to Seat­tle Just For This”

Absolutely fantastic. Words can’t describe how amazing this is. You will need a few hours here. This was definitely the highlight of our trip to Seattle. Totally unique.

Well Worth Your Time”

Not typically being into art galleries, I didn’t expect to care much for this stop, but went along with others in our group. I was very pleasantly surprised. The glass artwork in this place is amazing, and is beautifully displayed. Photos don’t do it justice. There is also a garden area where some of the pieces are displayed, as well as a courtyard with snack vendor(s). You could easily spend a while here, but we went through in less than two hours.

Watch the Short Videos”

Beautiful glass pieces! Check out the videos about Chihuly in the last room. There are several short videos about the glass blowing process and his journey working on some of his famous exhibitions. Also the professional photographers walking around will take your picture for free and you can e-mail yourself the photo for free as well. They make you take a short survey before they send it to you on the kiosk though.

Amaz­ing and a Must See in Seattle!”

AMAZING! We loved visiting and the gardens were our favorite. We would recommend this to anyone visiting Seattle. We would suggest the Space Needle, Chihuly and MoPOP all in one day. The Chihuly can take as little as an hour to visit and we had no wait.

The Glass Col­lec­tion and Works is Bet­ter Than Murano”

Amazing glass pieces in the museum, some using 300 plus colors. Very distinctive and tedious to make. From amazing glass chandeliers to canoe size pieces. The Chihuly gardens pieces are amazing, works of art. Excellent gift store associated where you can buy some pieces.Truly exceptional and a must visit, when you see the Space needle.

Art and Magic!”

Chihuly is amazing with his creation. This garden visit was worth it. We bought the combo of space needle and the garden. Truly amazing experience. Enjoy.

Very Beau­ti­ful”

Truly a gem of a visit to Chihuly gardens and glass exhibits! Have lived in Seattle for 7 years and had never seen this. What a amazing collection. Worth revisiting just to see all the gorgeous stuff.

Unbe­liev­able and Spectacular”

I was told that this is a must see. I had my doubts but I found that they are right. What he does with glass has to be seen to be believed. It was very beautiful and I was constantly amazed. There was also a demonstration by a glass blower that was very informative. We spent an hour and a half in there and it felt like 15 minutes. I highly recommend you visit this place

A Must See for All Ages”

I take every guest that comes to town and I notice something new every time I visit. It is a remarkable talent to blow glass and create such majestic pieces. It’s breathtaking and worth a visit.

BEAU­TI­FUL!”

We were in Seattle for a wedding and had half a day to tour around and see the sites. We took the monorail into City Center and bought the citypass on our phones - HIGHLY RECOMMEND (it lasts for multiple days and includes so many things). I don't know if I'd recommend paying full price for just the glass garden, but if you're doing a package deal it's a MUST-SEE. Truly beautiful garden and very well constructed gallery. If you can catch one of the tours/talks I recommend it. I didn't know that much about Chihuly's history before.
