The ROM commissioned a Dior dress for the exhibition "BIG". Here is how it is received upon arrival.
Dan Rahimi explains one important way in which the ROM guards its reputation.
Daniel Libeskind is announced as the architect for the project, following an international search. He sketches (and submits) his idea on napkins from the ROM's restaurant. William Thorsell talks about the process.
This is the story of how a new curator, David Evans, found the amazing barosaurus, which we named Gordo (for the curator, Gord Edmund, who had received it in the 60's).
In the opinion of Dan Rahimi, the ROM as an institution has evolved. He uses the example of a new book to illustrate what the future can bring.
Dan Rahimi answers the question "Are there parts of the Museum that speak to you"?
William Thorsell credits the people and the climate that made the project possible for the ROM and for Toronto.
Most of our domestic dogs came from Toronto families, but Bungy had a different background. (See also "Curator's Work")
Robert Barnett, Board Secretary, remembers what Mr. Goodman accomplished during his term as Board Chair.
As a summer project, Vanessa Minke-Martin created a six minute history of the ichthyology collections at the ROM. It features interviews and field trip footage. Watching it will give you a fine idea of how the research carried out by curatorial departments animates the programs of the ROM.
