Dolores Browne's expertise highlights restorations, designing functional art , space planning and graphics. Her various award winning projects, whether it be a show room, a calla lily sculpture to hide steam pipe cover eye sores, or a restoration of a dilapidated building, never cease to end. Currently, she has been exploring projects on the main line and enjoys delving into her love for computers and expertise as a graphic designer and space planner. She attended the Barnes Foundation both for Art and Arboretum studies and enjoyed attending the AIA computer committee before the Architects exploded with the use of computers.
Being the first to join the Barnes Alumni Association and elected to the University of the Arts Alumni Board she insures that the world of beauty is nearby. Many articles have praised her talents, including the Trigen Project, where Calla Lily Steam Pipe Covers won her the award for the Best Public Art in Philadelphia in 1995. Her last restorations is the Accomac Shores project in York, PA and the 1948 Bauhaus Renovations in Merion Station in 2010.
