Dallas Museum of Biblical Art Acquires My Art
Artist: Eileen Downes
Title: Open Door Policy
Size: 72" x 30" x 12" (36" opened)
I am very pleased to announce that the Museum of Biblical Art in Dallas, Texas is acquiring my conceptual art piece titled, Open Door Policy, from my Visions of Heaven Series for their permanent collection. The nationally recognized museum suffered a terrible loss of their fine art holdings in a fire in 2005. Since that devastating fire, they have rebuilt the museum and are scheduled to re-open in the fall of 2009 with a brand new collection of Biblical Themed artwork. Open Door Policy is a three dimensional interactive collage / assemblage where the viewer is invited to actually touch and open the antique door, revealing the collage tapestry of visions of heaven.
