Fort Collins Artist Gets State Department Commission

Fused glass artist Mary Barron has been commissioned by the U.S. Department of State to create a mural for its Embassy in Burundi.

“I’m thrilled to create a work of art for staff and visitors to enjoy in this east African country,” Ms. Barron said. “The region has long held great interest to me, and at their request, my fused glass triptych will include references to colorful cichlids, a species of fish native to Lake Tanganyika, on the shores of Burundi.”

Ms. Barron’s artwork was twice previously selected for the State Department’s ART in Embassies program, which placed her work temporarily in Malawi and Paraguay, but this is her first commission for permanent collection.

A 1976 BFA graduate of CSU, Ms. Barron now works primarily with fused glass, creating works of art, large custom installations and practical products such as glass tiles, murals and lighting through her company Adagio Art Glass.
