SEDONA ART MUSEUM EXHIBIT FEATURED AT SEDONA PUBLIC LIBRARY
On Monday, September 14th at 11:00 a.m., the Sedona Art Museum will showcase a piece of historical art at the Sedona Public Library. This small painting by the late Michael Kahn of Eliphante renown, and an internationally recognized artist/designer/philosopher, is the first in a series of art pieces on loan to the museum to help raise awareness of the need for a museum in Sedona.
Leda Livant, Michael Kahn’s widow and a well-known artist in her own right, will be on hand for the mounting of her late husband’s work at the library and to share her support of the future Sedona Art Museum. The exhibit will be displayed on a 25″ wide rock column near the front desk, visible to all visitors as they enter the library. New works will be rotated monthly, with a short artist biography accompanying the artwork.
The Sedona Art Museum was founded in 2012 and received its 501(c)3 non-profit status in November of 2014. It has been exploring appropriate venues and estimating costs for the initial project. A survey will be distributed this month to more than 5,000 residents to ascertain the community’s interest and level of support for the Art Museum.
“We are very appreciative to the Sedona Public Library, and especially Charlene Lipka, Program Director, for their cooperation in providing space for this effort,” said Sharron Porter, Chair of the Exhibitions Committee.
