SPRING 2017

Our cover sports a spectacular image of an extraordinary work and an extraordinary gift. Astronomical Calendar Sphere, created by the noted Czech artists Stanislav Libenský and Jaroslava Brychtová, was donated to the Chrysler by Lisa and Dudley Anderson in 2016.

The photo is a starting point for a six-page look at some of the approximately 250 works of art that we have added to the Chrysler Museum of Art collection in the past two years. About three-quarters of these additions have been gifts from friends of the Museum. Several are highlighted in this issue.
