Her travels, at the behest of New Yorka€™s Moderne Galerie Museum, owner of the famed 1907 a€œgoldena€ Klimt portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer, take her from the high desert of Santa Fe, New Mexico, to Switzerlanda€™s Ascona, as well as to New York, Vienna, Helsinki, Paris, Montreal, and Girdwood, Alaska.
