I’ve had a long time obsession with glass- abstract, functional and decorative. Dale Chihuly, one of my favorite living artists and glass artist extraordinaire currently has a large exhibit at the MFA, Boston so I jumped at the first chance I got to check it out with my mom. It was beyond anything I could have imagined or expected from this master of molten manipulation. Each room, each installation was more fantastical than the last and I was going over board snapping hundreds of photos with my iPhone, trying to capture what I was experiencing. I now have tons of incredible photos but I just need to decide what to do with them. The pops of electric colors and abstract, sea-form shapes are so amazing I am having the hardest time choosing which photos to display and how- I’m thinking of having a few of the prints blown up and framed in a series which I’ll hang in one of my hallway’s to add a fresh pop of color just in time for summer. Looking for something to do this weekend? The cost of admission to the Chihuly exhibit is less than $30 and even if you’ve seen his work before this exhibit was so inspiring and large-scale it’s really worth checking out (and it will be around through mid-August.)
