The 500 foot pedestrian bridge holds three amazing Chihuly glass installations, open to the public 24 hours a day.

The pavilion ceiling was created with over two thousand glass objects, and you will feel like you are underwater at a great coral reef of beautiful glass shapes. The crystal towers at the center of the bridge capture daylight and shine as if they have a light of their own. The blue translucent crystals call to mind images of cool blue glacial ice, and change their appearance at different times throughout the day. At night, they are illuminated from below and add to the night skyline. Venetian Wall 109 Chihuly sculptures fill the eighty-foot long wall (pictured above, with the Museum of Glass Cone behind).
