As we step into a new year, My Blue Dots will continue to support our ongoing cancer programs but we are also stepping into a new field - stem cell research.
My Blue Dots mission has always mixed the arts with healing, so we have commissioned glass artist, Dale Chihuly (www.chihuly.com) to create a magnificant hanging piece of art glass in the main entrance of the Lorry I. Lokey Stem Cell Research building at Stanford University, Stanford, CA.
We are excited about bringing this wonderful piece to this building at Stanford as a symbol of hope to those challenged by this disease and as a symbol of encouragement to those working in this building to cure this disease.
Until Next Time....
CANCER will be
why not NOW?
Looking to the New Year
Art and science have always evolved together. The revolutions of the Renaissance were equally scientific and artistic, as developments in both fields changed humankind's view of the world and our place in it.
The My Blue Dots - Chihuly Project aims to continue that symbiosis by funding a major installation by renowned glass artist Dale Chihuly in Stanford's new Lorry I. Lokey Stem Cell Research Building to promote revolutionary advances in cancer treatment and raise awareness on the influence of art to science, and science to art.
The Lorry I. Lokey Stem Cell Research Building at Stanford University will be open by the fall of 2010.
