On view during the ROM’s centennial year, the ROM100 Mobile features textile interpretations of some of our most iconic objects. The Friends of Textiles and Costume, a group of committed and passionate volunteers, set about creating 78 one-of-a-kind reproductions of everything from an ancient Chinese emperor’s robe to a bust of Roman emperor, from Bull the Rhino to a favourite wasp. This large scale installation, designed with the aid of Ralph Neal and Jonathan Neal of Upper Canada Design House Lt., consists of twelve themed panels.
