Chihuly: Through the Looking Glass

If your plans include a trip to Boston anytime in the near future; you're in for a real treat.  The Boston Museum of Fine Arts is hosting the exhibition Chihuly: Through the Looking Glass. Seemingly, Through the Looking Glass is an apt name for the exhibit.  According to a very dear friend (who just returned from a trip to Florida where she took in the Chihuly Museum), this is a must-see show.  The interplay of light, dark, color, reflection, space, and glass make for a visual experience that becomes otherworldly.  Completely mind blowing are the words she used to describe the Chihuly Museum.  And I'm all for that!
Information about the exhibit and a short video of Chihuly glass (useful if you're working on one of those wonderful Chihuly Lesson plans that are floating around the web) are posted on the Boston Museum of Fine Arts website.  You can watch the video and get details here.
If you planning to stay in Boston and would like a lead on a place to stay, check out the Buckminster Hotel.  It's a Sanford White building with a view of Fenway Park.  The Buckminster is within walking distance and/or T travel to the museum, the aquarium, Chinatown, Little Italy, etc.
See you there!
