FSU President Emeritus Sandy D’Alemberte, also a former dean of the College of Law and current professor, is being honored with a handmade stained-glass window in Dodd Hall’s Heritage Museum. These photos reveal some specific elements created for this exquisite work of art. The window features highlights of D’Alemberte’s iconic career in education and politics.
It will include a striking portrait of D’Alemberte painted with a special enamel paint, made of finely ground glass, and then kiln fired. The artist used a half dozen color variations to get the skin tones just right. The museum’s newest stained-glass window — the 38th in the room and measuring 101 inches wide by 35 inches tall — is expected to be installed in fall 2017.
