Turn Your Passion Into a Reality



When the renovated Chrysler Museum of Art opens on May 10 after a year of work, visitors will be treated to a 17-foot kinetic sculpture funded by the Christiane and James Valone Charitable Fund administered by the Hampton Roads Community Foundation. British artist Luke Jerram created the innovative sculpture to hang in a spiral staircase that connects the museum’s modern art gallery with its children’s area, including the Hampton Roads Community Foundation Education Center. The new chandelier honors the Valones’ parents.
