Safety Tip: Greasing the Landing


Visit Tacoma and be amazed by its public art, museums, historic buildings, and revitalized waterfront. Pictured here is the “Seaform Pavilion” installation on the Chihuly Bridge of Glass. This pedestrian bridge links the Museum of Glass to downtown Tacoma and its cultural corridor. Other glass sculptures are arranged in a wall on its side. The bridge provides a means for the internationally renowned studio glass pioneer Dale Chihuly to contribute to his hometown in a very public way. Photo by Mahesh Thapa.
