A charitable event — and the first of its kind to be held at Beaver Stadium — will allow participants to rappel 110 feet from the south side of the country’s second-largest stadium to benefit the Centre County United Way in mid-May.
The new building for the Palmer Museum of Art at Penn State, which is currently under construction, will feature a site-specific art installation by internationally acclaimed artist Dale Chihuly. Commissioned in honor of Penn State President Emeritus Eric Barron and his wife Molly Barron, and funded through the generosity of donors, Lupine Blue Persian Wall will anchor the feature staircase in the Museum’s new 71,254-square-foot facility, slated to open to the public in spring 2024. The large-scale installation spans over 13 feet tall and 35 feet wide and comprises 22 glass forms in Penn State’s classic blue and white, accented with golden yellows and vibrant reds. This stunning work will be a notable addition to the Palmer Museum’s growing permanent collection.
