All That Glitters Opening Reception at First Canadian Place was on Tuesday September 17th, 2019. I found this exhibit somewhat underwhelming. Not enough glitter. Not enough gold.
There was a whole partition wall that I felt could have had something theme oriented hung from it. If the FCP had of called me ahead of the show I could have spray painted some one foot square canvases metallic gold then stamped them 10k, 14k, and 24k. They could have sold each at the current rate for scrape gold based on the carat amount specified.
In the meantime, I felt the light fixture high above the exhibit floor had more sparkle than many of the items on display. As you can see for yourself in the fifth image of the above set they were multi-faceted (I tinted it gold for effect.)
My take away from the experience was the exquisite catering by Oliver & Bonacini. The chicken club slider was as mouth watering as it appears below.
