Chihuly at the ROM

Lovely, if microscopic, exhibit at the ROM. Visited on Friday with Paula. Paula had seen his installation in Denver and tells me the sculptures are more magnificent outside, in the midst of nature, gardens and water.

My mom and brother saw his exhibit in September in Seattle, just at the base of the Space Needle, and raved about it. ┬áThe Chihuly exhibit, plus their observation that everybody in Seattle has a dog – the most important take-aways for them.

I was very impressed, although I’ve never spent $30 for a 10-minute exhibit before.

And WTF — no Chihuly-licensed or Chihuly-inspired glass paperweights in the gift shop? How does that make any sense? Most obvious product tie-in ever.
