Why not? It's a pretty awesome display of art and beauty. And sometimes you have to take the glass to the people :)

Gorgeous glass! Eagerly awaiting my turn, wondering if anything'll left for ME when display reaches Tacoma; feeling slighted, wondering why Tacoma Glassblowing Studio's namesake is penultimate stop of perambulating pumpkin patch. $? B(
