Chihuly Exhibit at the MFA


     Saturday, I went with friends to see glass artist Dale Chihuly's exhibit at the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, MA. This amazing retrospective of the artist's work will be here until August 7th. I have to admit that I had not heard of Chihuly until recently. His towering blown glass installations left us all speechless.

     I've included the photo below with a person silhouetted in the doorway at left to give you a perspective regarding the size of the pieces.

    Here are two incredibly beautiful segments from the Multi Fiori installation.

   This is a ceiling installation.

If you would like to learn more about this exhibit, visit Chihuly: Through the Looking Glass.

     It was a truly phenomenal look into the mind of a creative genius. There is still time; go see it.
