Posted by The Washington Post on Saturday, December 13, 2017 07:29:47 The Washington Public Art Commission voted to designate Apple’s “I Can Not Take My Eyelids Off Him” as the nation’s first major exhibition of contemporary art created by an Australian artist.
It was approved by the commission’s Advisory Committee on Public Art on Friday.
The commission has been asked to approve the work as soon as possible, but its first two weeks are set to begin on Monday.
Apple, which owns Beats Music, the world’s largest music streaming service, has also produced “I Am Apple” and “I Believe Apple,” two works in the series that are set in Sydney.
Apple said the two works were created in response to the Sydney Opera House shooting, in which six people were killed.
The Apple music store has also created a series of paintings in support of the victims of the Sydney siege.
The art commission’s advisory committee is made up of prominent artists, including artists from Canada and the United Kingdom.
Apple chief executive Tim Cook is a longtime supporter of Australia, and the company’s music business is based in Sydney, where it has a massive record store.
Apple’s music and music streaming business, which is also owned by the company, has been one of the main beneficiaries of Australia’s generous tax breaks.
Apple has spent millions of dollars on advertising and has created thousands of jobs in Australia, where the Australian dollar has appreciated against other major currencies.
The company said it plans to use the proceeds to support education in Australia.
It is not the first time Apple has contributed to Australia’s arts and cultural community.
In 2017, Apple donated $200,000 to the Australian Museum of Modern Art, which houses some of Australia ‘s most celebrated works of contemporary Australian art.
This is Apple ‘s first major art project in Australia in more than a decade.
Apple was founded in 1976 in the U.S. and has been expanding internationally ever since.
Apple’s current headquarters are in Cupertino, California.
