Dale Chihuly at the MFA

2011 Best Exhibition

The retrospective of this glass artist was machine-tooled to be a crowd pleaser, complete with a Vegas-worthy extravaganza in the form of the 42-foot ;Lime Green Icicle Tower. But forget the TV profiles and the magazine photos: Immaculately lit to maximum effect, Chihuly’s surreal, kaleidoscopic sculptures were even more startling and mesmerizing in person. Best of all, this show taught the flocks of kids that visited that fine art is freakin’ cool.
