The Chrysler Museum was pleased to host Eggleston, a local non-profit providing services to persons with disabilities for a special reception featuring art made by Eggleston associates. Coordinated by Jonathan Markham, Manager of Curriculum and Gallery Programs and the Education Department, the project has included a variety of trips to Eggleston’s Day support program in Norfolk. At Eggleston, Chrysler staff interacted and educated associates, but the relationship also included trips to the Chrysler studio where each artist from Eggleston created a work of art based on the Louise Nevelson piece called “Dawn’s Presence”. The display will be in the Gifford room for several weeks for all to enjoy. On hand to speak were Eggleston CEO Paul Atkinson and Museum Deputy Director Susan Leidy. All 12 participating artists were given a year’s membership for their families as a gift.
Due to inclement weather, Eggleston’s Corporate Office, and Business Services will have a two hour delay in opening tomorrow, Jan.18th. Day Programs are closed.
