We visited the Musee National des Beaux Arts in Montreal specifically to see the Dale Chihuly exhibition and it was both extensive and incredibly beautiful. It runs until early October - DON'T MISS IT!!!!! As you climb the stairs to the exhibition floor, you get the first glimpse of the glass pieces hung facing you. Room after room is filled with astoundingly beautiful colorful strange and familiar shapes. Some stand alone. Others are grouped together as forests, as magical boats, as bigger than life marbles, as astoundingly dramatic vessels. There is one room that encourages viewers to lay on mats set on the floor so that you can better gaze at the dropped-plexiglass covered ceiling above which are hundreds of flat, curves, squiggly, large, tiny and always colorful pieces. The view up is only accentuated by the reflected colors that stream down the walls.
