    Impressive Chihuly Exhibit
    I went to see the updated Chihuly Exhibit and it was very impressive. I saw it several years ago but it was even better this time. They added some new pieces and I really enjoyed it. I was also able to see the special Rodin exhibit, which I also enjoyed. I would highly recommend visiting this museum if you are in the area. It’s definitely worth the time and be sure to check out the Chihuly Exhibit while you are there.

    Great experience!
    We had a great time at this museum. The regular exhibits were interesting enough, and were organized on the basis of theme (the sea, publicly funded art of the 1930's, international travel, portraits, etc.) There were 3 special exhibits, 2 of which were great-1. an exhibit on Rodin (which included some of his paintings as well as his statues, and artwork from Monet, Sisley, Gauguin, and Cezanne). Highly informative, useful for understanding the man and his work. 2. A solid collective of Chihuly glasswork, quite impressive. The Rodin exhibit is ending soon, but the Chihuly exhibit goes well into 2024! They have a small cafe with limited offering, which were fairly good. The gift shop was good. Overall, a very good museum.

    The Goldilocks of Art Museums—Just Right
    This art museum is the perfect size with enough artistic styles to satisfy a variety of artistic tastes. And you can see it all before you hit your saturation point. The Rodin exhibit (temporary) was incredible but my favorite was the Chihuly section. Well done!

    Great museum and tour
    Our family visited the museum on Sat. 3/23/24. We were there primarily to see the 'Raven and box of light" exhibit which was excellent. We arranged for a tour (min. 10 people) through the museum and loved the tour. We found the tour very helpful (thanks Tori for the great tour and Destiny for helping us schedule it). The museum has a great and very large collection of Chihuly glass which we thought was great. There are several other types of glass work exhibits and a good sized painting exhibit area. Overall we spent about 3 hours in the museum, including the tour and it was well worth it. If you are in OKC this is a must do.

    Quality Museum
    Visited to see the Edith Head exhibit specifically. A definite must-see for anyone interested in costume design or the golden age of Hollywood. Superbly designed exhibit which speaks the quality of this museum. Helpful staff who take pride in their work.

Great Museum. Have been here before, their collection of Chihuly is wonderful. So colorful and bright, it just puts you in a good mood. The re-done exhibit had just opened. While it is as lovely as ever, I liked the glass ceiling hallway better than the new, more open room with the glass ceiling.

Also, since they are revamping their exhibits, we were not able to see several of the rooms of paintings and other art as they were closed off. However, admission fees have been discounted.

On Saturday (5/27) our daughter had tickets to a performance of "Hamilton", very close to the Museum of Art. So, we made plans that they would drop us off at the Museum before the performance, and pick us up afterwards. Meaning, we would have 4 hours to wander the galleries. Daughter was a bit concerned that his might be too long, but as we are slow movers, we were happy.

We were left at the Museum entrance at 1 pm, and immediately were awed by the Chihuly tower in the lobby It is 55 feet tall, and absolutely, gorgeous. We could have just sat in that lobby, and stared at it for the longest time.

After we had paid Admission, we turned left, and entered into the unbelievably beautiful world of Chihuly. Everything was so well spaced and displayed. My very favorite room was the one with the so called "Reeds". It, very much, reminded me of the Dansk (from Denmark) taper candles, which came in those colors, and which my mother used in the early 1960's. I spent the most time there. My husband did not have any favorites-he loved everything.

We spent over an hour in that gallery, and decided to take our lunch break. Walked to the other end of the hallway, and found the Gift Store, with the cafe/bar inside. The menu is quite short, but the food is delicious. There are only 3 tables inside, scattered among the Gift Shop merchandise, and we were lucky to get the one by the window. Outside, there are many tables. We shared a "Spring Salad" (the freshest ever), and, then, shared a "Pecan Tart" for dessert. For drink, we had local Oklahoma City beer. The quality of the food and the presentation, were like eating at the Ritz-Carlton. It was so pleasant sitting there, enjoying our food, and enjoying the merchandise displays in the shop. Surprisingly, everything I picked up was made in the USA.

However, by now, it was 3:30, and we still had much ground to cover. So pulled ourselves away from the cozy table, and went to explore the Museum further. Lucky for us, many large spaces were closed, as they were preparing for a "Rodin and the Age of Impressionism" exhibit, which was to open mid June. I say, "lucky for us", as this way, we were able to return to the Chihuly gallery two more times, before being picked up at 5.

Dale Chihuly must have a fondness for this Museum and Oklahoma, as we noticed quite a few pieces, which he had donated to the Museum. Over a decade ago, we were at the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, and noticed that they had a "Donation Box" in front of a Chihuly art work. I asked a docent about that, and she said that they were fund raising to buy one of his pieces, which had remained after a special exhibit. She said that he would not even give them a discount! Looks like he did not like Boston!

We spent four wonderful hours there, and would have stayed longer, but the Museum closes at 5, and our ride was at the door at 5. We could go back to this Museum every month. We enjoyed it that much.

If you are a fan of Chihuly glass, this is the place for you! In the lobby is a magnificent tower of glass, 3 stories high — awesome! Other stunning exhibits on 3rd floor. We were lucky to visit during the special exhibit of the Mellon’s collection of French impressionists. Only disappointment was that the museum closed early for a special event — we were not told this when we purchased our tickets.

I was hoping for more painting but some of the exhibition was closed. However, instead we were treated to an exhibition of glass and drawings by Dale Chihuly, titled Dale Chihuly-very unique and definitely worth making a trip to the Art Museum.
