MAYORS PURCHASE AWARD ANNOUNCED! In 2006, Beverly Hills Mayor Stephen P. Webb presented the City of Beverly Hills “Mayor’s Purchase Awards” to participating San Diego Master Glass Artist, James Stone, at the Annual Beverly Hills Affaire in the Gardens Art Show, held at the Beverly Gardens Park. The piece chosen by the Mayor is a mixed media bench made of metal and glass named Noah’s Arc Bench, a tribute piece to the oldest found reference to glass, when referring to an Arc window.
Stone hopes his art will inspire onlookers to ideally think more responsibly about what we do and how we impact the ocean and its inhabitants.
