What, When, Where: Through the Looking Glass

Under the pretext of â€œbetter late than never,â€ I give you Chihuly: Through the Looking Glass, a not-so-brand-new exhibit at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. (The exhibit opened back in April, but it runs through August 7 so it’s still relevant–and so darn cool, I couldn’t resist sharing!)
I remember first being awed by glass artist Dale Chihuly about eight years ago, when I stepped beneath his glass ceiling installation in the new wing of the Norton Museum of Art in West Palm Beach, Florida. It was almost like walking under water–the fantastical shapes and colors even had me holding my breath.

With this new exhibit at the MFA, you can get an even closer look at Chihuly’s work spanning the last four decades. Here are a few photos from the exhibit:
