Olympia – Steinway by Chihuly, unveiled at the 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City, reflects the abstract expression of wintery mountain forests juxtaposed with the bright Promethean colors idealized by the fire of the Olympic spirit. The piano’s many extraordinary features include a clear glass piano desk, and a translucent glass top, the first ever designed for a Steinway piano. The Olympia has just returned from China. Shahoulie exhibit and the piano will be featured at the exhibit along with other great Chihuly works of art.
Immaculata University, a Catholic, coeducational institution, is located 20 miles west of Philadelphia, south of the intersection of routes 30 and 352, between Paoli and Exton.
