    Dale Chihuly Mosaic Persian 1240X550To be permanently installed in the foyer of the Lowe Art Museum, Dale Chihuly’s spectacular Mosaic Persian will be on view to the public beginning Friday, April 13.  A gift to the Lowe, Mosaic Persian was commissioned in 1998 for collectors Dale & Doug Anderson’s Palm Beach home, and comprises 32 beautiful glass elements reconfigured specifically for the Lowe. The installation reflects the Lowe’s focus in 2018, which it declared the “Year of Glass.”

    “The Andersons’ remarkable gift to the Lowe Art Museum is truly transformative,” said Jill Deupi, Beaux Arts director and chief curator of the Lowe. “Not only is their stunning Chihuly installation destined to become one of the Lowe’s signature works of art, it will also highlight for our visitors the remarkable collections housed in our Myrna and Sheldon Palley Pavilion, which was reinstalled earlier this year in celebration of the  “Year of Glass.” We are deeply grateful to Dale & Doug for their generosity of spirit and their belief in the power of art to touch and to change lives.”

    The installation of Mosaic Persian in the Lowe’s foyer will be followed by other glass art-related events throughout the “Year of Glass,” including glass exhibitions; a lecture by artist Clifford Rainey as part of the Palley bi-annual glass artist lecture series; teacher workshops, Community Days, tours, and other education and engagement events.
