Chihuly, Royal Ontario Museum, Toronto, ON

The Chihuly exhibition has been in Toronto at the Royal Ontario Museum (ROM) since the summer and is leaving on January 8 ... so I checked it out today.

Immerse yourself in a spectacular exhibition exploring colour, light and form by one of the world’s foremost artists working in glass today. 

Created by sand, fire and human breath, these brilliantly coloured works of art produce a magical, sensory experience that will never be forgotten.

To be honest, I didn't know a lot about it or the artist (apparently all the kool kids do, though).  The pieces were quite amazing, colourful and huge.  I'm so glad I got to see it before it leaves.

This display is huge ... over 2000 pieces!

These were much taller than me

There was a trellis that was very cool.

There was also a room where the ceiling was amazing!

You are encouraged to lay back and enjoy ... and I did!

I also checked out the Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibit and the photographs were inspiring.  No pictures allowed, though, so you'll have to go check it out yourself.
