We recently ventured north with my parents to lovely Seattle and stopped in Tacoma on the way. While Tacoma was, perhaps, the smelly armpit of the Puget Sound a few years ago – much has been made of the rejuvenating cultural scene centered around the Museum of Glass. Rachel had been before, but the rest of us visited for the first time and admired the walk up to the building as much as the show inside. They had a really great exhibit up that Rachel photoed before realizing she wasn’t supposed to, so we’ll respect the museum and just show some photos of the outside. We also witnessed Lino Tagliapietra and team make a beautiful piece – they have a retrospective of his work up now that looks pretty incredible. Definitely worth a visit.
