Interpretive Planner? What’s that? We caught up with Richard Lahey, ROM Interpretive Planner, to explain his role in the museum world, as well as what he did to help bring the larger-than-life Ultimate Dinosaur exhibition together and some of the interesting things he learned.
Bringing an exhibition to life takes a whole team – especially an exhibition the size and scale of Ultimate Dinosaurs: Giants of Gondwana. To help get this ultimate exhibition up and running the ROM brought it contract curator Matthew Vavrek.
While to the casual observer, this is an example of fine made jewellery that sits in the Gem and Gold Gallery, Teck Suite of Galleries: Earth Treasures with other fine made jewellery pieces. As is reflected in the layered design of the brooch, this piece has layers of information and history as well.
On a recent trip to New York City, ICC Managing Director Francisco Alvarez met with artist Marla Mossman. While gallery hopping and deep conversations over sushi, Marla shared the details of her very intriguing current art project.
The Friends of the Institute for Contemporary Culture are a group of ROM members with an affinity for the ICC and its activities. The ICC seeks to stimulate “diverse audiences to think creatively, understand and change the world,” and when the FICC committee first came together just under a year ago, we wanted to find new ways to support this intention.

It’s an elite group of people that have walked on the moon, but this weekend you will have a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to share the experience with Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin (or at least the image of them – Neil is reflected in Buzz’s space helmet). Space Weekend, May 5 – 6 only, is shaping up to be out of this world!
Earth Weekend is coming fast, and we couldn’t be more excited! The interactive workshop with Barbara Reid will be amazing, but the Hands-on team from the Keenan Family Gallery of Hands-on Biodiversity is also preparing many more fun and interactive events for the second floor.
