William Thorsell talks about some surprises that contributed to the costs of Renaissance ROM.
Victor Dodig, now CEO of the CIBC (but Senior Executive Vice-President when this video was made), recalls his very first visit to the ROM. He explains what the relationship has meant to him over the years, and celebrates ROM's continuing connection to its bank.
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.
Robert Barnett relates his varied career path, starting in childhood.
Jim Cruise tells about some ups and downs. The Queen's visit was a peak experience. In the Georgian Canada exhibition, which artifact did she like the best?

If you've ever wondered about how galleries and exhibitions are put together, you can listen to a seasoned professional explain....
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.
William Thorsell credits the people and the climate that made the project possible for the ROM and for Toronto.
