Friday, November 2, The Rose Crystal Tower, a sculpture by world renowned glass artist Dale Chihuly, was unveiled at the New Orleans Botanical Garden. At 22 feet tall, this soaring bright pink sculpture welcomes City Park visitors as they enter the garden. David Kerstein, president of the Helis Foundation, which is underwriting the sculpture in the park, says "Everything we do, in particular with our programs with the various museums, is to ensure there is an educational component to it. Young people from public and charter schools will have the opportunity to see this art without charge, and hopefully it will inspire them.” We are thrilled to have this beautiful piece of public art in our city, and cannot wait to go see it!
