(News Release)

BIG news to share….

The Royal Ontario Museum (ROM) is pleased to advise of the extended engagement of BIG, the current installation in the Patricia Harris Gallery of Textiles & Costume on Level 4 in the Museum’s Michael Lee-Chin Crystal.

Originally scheduled to close in Fall 2013, BIG can now be seen until Sunday, January 26, 2014.

A stunning display, BIG is exclusively drawn from the ROM’s collection of nearly 50,000 textiles and costumes. Showcasing 40 artifacts from around the world, this unique exhibition includes objects assuming their BIG status in a myriad of ways.

With some objects publicly displayed for the first time, the installation offers a fresh, new way of exploring the ROM’s renowned collections.
