Vacilating between Tacoma's art museum and glass museum, i chose the earlier because i didn't really feel like looking at piles of chihuly glass. Funny thing, there's an instalment of his works at the center of the museum, so here it is.
The St. John's Bible exhibit is pretty amazing. Not particularly animal-friendly (written on calf-skin vellum using hand-plucked feather pens), but otherwise impressive and beautiful. The exhibit also included some very old works, including 15th century books that i enjoyed the opportunity to view.
