Reception to Dedicate New Chandelier in Summit Hotel12/20/06
BIG SKY, Mont. - A reception will be held Friday, January 12 to dedicate the newly unveiled chandelier that now hangs in the lobby of Summit Hotel at Big Sky Resort. Wine tasting will be provided Matador Wines from Bozeman.
The collaboration began with Linda Mylonas, a Summit Unit owner and board member from Irvine, CA. She holds a degree in Interior Design among other experiences in various fields. Linda conceptualized and designed the project with Little Bear Interiors owner Debra Young. Little Bear Interiors is located in Bozeman.
It was a year-long project. Linda found Debra and they worked together to find the appropriate artist for this enormous assignment. Through multiple stages of pictures, sketches and ideas they found the right artist to create the piece. For eight months, the three parties were in constant contact discussing aesthetic details and installation engineering. The final work of art was assembled in full when it was hung in early December in the Summit Lobby.
The custom "One of a kind" piece of art was built and sculpted by Colorado artist, Reverend Doctor Brad Hamm and his assistant Pat Coady. Brad has works of art from Washington to Beijing.
The chandelier consists of eight animal heads, including four elk and four deer. The antlers are real, recovered from natural animal shed. It is made from cold cast bronze and holds hurricane glass with candle-like electric lights, and decorated with oak leaf foliage.
The celebration will be centered around the new artwork. The reception and wine tasting will be held in the upper lobby of the Summit, providing a great view of the chandelier.Back To Press Release Archive
