A new museum is opening in Shoreview, Minnesota, a suburb of Minneapolis, that will display the private art collection of an art lover and philanthropist named Gerald Cafesjian. This includes the above piece by Dale Chihuly, who along with his wife Leslie Jackson Chihuly are supporters of Path with Art. Her personal story has been a great inspiration to me. I encourage people to watch the conversation she had with Holly Jacobson.

Another photo from Rio

Long-time PWA Participant Artist Dragonsong wants to share another photo from her trip to Rio de Janeiro in 2007.

“We visited the huge and awe-inspiring statue of Christ. It is a magnificent monument.”

The statue is called Christ the Redeemer, or in Portuguese, Cristo Redentor. The style is Art Deco. It was designed by a French sculptor named Paul Landowski and built by engineers Heitor da Silva Costa, a Brazilian, and Albert Caquot, a Frenchman.

Previously, Dragonsong shared a photo of a sunset from the same trip.
