Sonata Glass Sculpture @ Kennedy

Christopher RiesNearly 75 people were in attendance to hear and see the presentation by noted glass artist, Christopher Ries. Immediately following his presentation, the crowd was joined by additional customers and Library supporters eager to get a glimpse of the sculpture. The art area at Kennedy was filled to capacity as Ries and Patricia Schaefer, who donated the sculpture to the Library, lifted the cloth to reveal Sonata. The glass sculpture is an etched blue crystal multi-dimensional disk. It weighs more than 700 pounds and is nearly 7 feet tall including its pedestal base. Also in attendance at the event was Tom Hawk, owner of Hawk Galleries in Columbus, Ohio. Virginia (Ginny) Nilles, Muncie Public Library Director, thanked Schaefer for sharing this magnificent piece of art with Muncie Public Library and the Muncie community!
