#ThursdayDoors – Royal Ontario Museum, Toronto

26 Comments

On Tuesday, my son, Christopher, and I went to the Royal Ontario Museum in Toronto.

It’s a yearly excursion for us. This year’s special exhibition featured the art of Dale Chihuly.

The pictures really don’t do the art justice. If you ever have a chance to see Chihuly’s work firsthand, go.

Thursday Doors is a prompt by the fabulous Norman Frampton. Click the following link to go to his post for this week and see how you, too, can join in! https://miscellaneousmusingsofamiddleagedmind.wordpress.com/2016/08/04/thursday-doors-august-4-2016/

  2. Love the ROM – good choice!
    And that Chihuly exhibit is amazing. It has been touring North America for a few years now; I don’t know how they transport all of that fragile stuff from city to city without breaking anything 😀

  3. Love these doors. I have some favorites, but comments never let us viewers add pictures. Sometime, in the future…

  4. In the tasting room at the Maker’s Mark Distillery in Loretto, Kentucky, there is a Chihuly display in the ceiling lit from above, almost exactly like the one you pictured here. When we visited, I thought it was pretty amazing!

  5. I LOVE Dale Chihuly’s work–every piece is gorgeous. And just a bit of trivia–I enjoy jigsaw puzzles very much, and I recently purchased one that was all “doors”–a very pretty challenge 🙂

  6. There is a big Chihuly collection at the Missouri Botanical Gardens. Very distinctive work–there’s nothing else quite like it.
