Chi-what now?

If you live in the greater Boston area, you've probably heard about Dale Chihuly's ridiculous blown glass exhibit on display at the MFA. I finally went the other day, and I was so totally floored by what I saw I had to share it with you guys.

The first room consisted of a smallish rowboat, filled with colorful glass sculptures. The floor was mirrored, so we could see the sculptures' reflections underneath.

The next room was a long strip of sculptured that looked like something I can only describe as looking like a Demented Underwater Rainforest.

The third room was empty, but the ceiling was covered in wavy circles that looked kind of like oyster shells.

The next room had several gargantuan sculptures hanging from the cieling, in all different colors. My favorite was the light blue.

In the final room we saw this. "Purple sticks stuck into logs" sounds totally boring compared to the other pieces, but look how cool!

I loved this exhibit and would recommend it to anyone who likes art and/or being aesthetically pleased :)

I saw an exhibit of his last fall in Michigan - it was outdoor and it was amazing to see how the sculptures fit with the landscape and gardens. Plus, it's pretty amazing to watch the museum videos on how the art is created. What a team of sculptors!

I haven't been to Boston in a long time since a guy there broke my heart. So I'm overdue for a visit, I'll have to check this out.

That is completely, insanely awesome! What a talented guy! I am totally blown away. I have seen a similar piece at a hotel in Atlantic City, I wonder if he did that one too! Wow, just... wow. :)

Hope you are having a great day!
