The dedication of the public art project attracted families and frineds and brought together downtown neighbors and businesses. The Greater Des Moines Public Art Foundation officially turned on the 40,000 LED lights which illuminated the hand-blown glass mural. The event was highlighted by soprano Mary Hudson, who performed “O mio babbino caro” — an aria from the opera Gianni Schicchi (1918), by Giacomo Puccini.
