Around the arts

Ambassador to Singapore donates works from private collection to IU museum\n The IU Art Museum is exhibiting six rare works on loan from the private collection of U.S. Ambassador to Singapore Steven Green and his wife, Dorothea. These six works of art range from sacred and secular paintings by 17th century Dutch and Flemish masters to a French Impressionist landscape by Eugene Boudin, a pen and ink drawing by Paul Signac and a major abstract oil on paper by Robert Motherwell. \nBefore Green was appointed ambassador to Singapore, he was an international industrialist and private investor. Most recently, he served as chairman and chief executive officer of the Astrum International Corporation, a consulting firm for online marketing.\nOn loan for a year, the paintings will be on display in the first floor gallery of Western art until June 2001. The IU Art Museum is open Tuesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. and Sunday from noon until 5 p.m. It is closed on Mondays and major holidays.
