Upcoming Training for Chihuly Docents: Sept. 19, 6-8 pm
The next training session for Chihuly Walking Tour docents is on Tuesday, September 19, 2006 from 6-8 pm. It will consist of a lecture by Bonnie Gallagher from Union Station. Bonnie is Tacoma’s local Chihuly expert and has very close ties to Chihuly Studios. She will be giving an informal lecture with slides and/or video, and will be including information about the history of Union Station, Hilltop Glass Artists, other Chihuly collections around the country, and what’s coming next for Dale Chihuly’s work. She is a wealth of Chihuly information!
This training is required for all Chihuly Walking Tour docents, and highly recommended for all other docents.

New $15 Price
Please note that the price for a Chihuly Walking Tour is $15 per person, weekdays and weekends. Even though Union Station is closed on weekends, we feel that there is still plenty of Chihuly glass to see on the tour, and the price will be the same on all days. Please do try to take your weekend tours to the UW Library chandelier if possible, but the UW Library will be closed on weekends until September 25, 2006.

Stay Updated with www.chihuly.com
The Chihuly website updates exhibition information once a week. Please make sure that you look at this information periodically so that you are informed about major Chihuly exhibitions and installations that are happening around the world.
The BIOGRAPHY section of the site also has a HUGE amount of information about Dale Chihuly if you ever need new material.
Meet Bonnie at Union Station
When you visit Union Station with your tour groups, use Bonnie Gallagher as a resource. She has a humongous wealth of knowledge about Dale Chihuly and his art. She is always open to talking to tour groups and answering their questions or helping you out in any other way that you might need.
If you haven’t already read the Chihuly Cell Phone Tour transcript, you can find it at the docent desk and I recommend it!
Thanks for your time!
