"Hibel Museum of Art Opens Anew"
0000-00-00 until 2000-02-06
Hibel Museum of Art
Lake Worth, FL, USA United States of America

The world's only non-profit, public museum dedicated to the art of a living American woman-- formerly located seven miles away in Palm Beach, Florida, for 23 years--the Hibel Museum will exhibit the paintings, original graphics, drawings, giclees, multimedia, and sculpture of the renowned Renaissance- and Impressionist-style artist, Edna Hibel.The new Hibel Museum of Art will open its doors to the public on Monday, December 20, in Lake Worth, Florida. Its grand opening is set for Thursday, January 6, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.

Hibel, who will be 83 in January, has been painting professionally nearly 60 years since her Sturtevant Traveling Fellowship and graduation from the Boston Museum School of Fine Arts in 1940. Her work has been exhibited in prestigious museums and galleries in more than 20 countries on four continents, including unprecedented displays in the China National Art Gallery in Beijing, the Russian Academy of Fine Art in St. Petersburg, and the Dubrovnik Museum in the former Yugoslavia.

Featured at this historic museum opening will be the opening of the last stop on a museum tour of Compassion Around The World: The Art of Edna Hibel. Beginning in March, this exhibit was displayed in the National Jewish Museum in Washington, D.C., the Museum of Printing History in Houston, Texas, and the Cornell Museum of Art and History in Delray Beach, Florida. The exhibit was also shown recently in the Jeannette Hare Art Gallery at Northwood University in West Palm Beach, Florida, where Hibel received her fifth honorary doctorate degree.

Hibel's documentary--the only one by a foreign woman in the former Soviet Union--won several critical accolades, including an award from the American Association of Museums. The one-hour television documentary, Hibel's Russian Palette, shows the artist's view of the unraveling of the former Soviet Union, and will be broadcast in 2000 on P.B.S. stations.

Admission to the new Hibel Museum of Art is free from Monday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and is located at 701 Lake Avenue in Lake Worth. Additional information about the Hibel Museum of Art may be obtained by contacting (561) 533-6872, and by visiting www.hibel.org.
