tonight i had the chance to visit the 'chihuly: through the looking glass's exhibit at the museum of fine arts.  chihuly's sculptures and installations, made from glass and natural materials, were breathtaking.  i was completely taken with his 'persian ceiling' installation.  i also liked the artist's admission that he chose the word 'persian' because he thought it sounded fancy.  all of the photos above show the beautiful blown glass that took over the ceiling of one of the exhibit's rooms.  the colors were incredible and the amount of detail and precision is wild.  the room glowed in soothing shades of red, blue and green.  all i needed was a glass of wine and a beanbag chair and i could have stayed there all evening.  i strongly encourage all of my boston friends to check this out before it ends in august.
