9. Dale Chihuly Chandelier

The focal point for the entry of the Jule Collins Smith Museum of Fine Art at Auburn University, Chihuly’s Amber Luster is a masterpiece of more than 600 individual pieces of hand-blown glass. It took four days to install, one piece at a time, the 17-foot sculpture which weighs more than 1,000 pounds. JCSM features a varied and interesting permanent collection of American and European art as well as a full calendar of traveling exhibitions throughout the year. Open Monday-Saturday with free admission to all.
