August 26 - October 22, 2017
Opening reception: Saturday, August 26 at 4 PM - 6 PM
Carlo Marcucci will be exhibiting two bodies of work (Staples & Wheatfields) at "Estate Italiana" (Italian Summer) with six other Italian artists (Alex Pinna, Antonella Masetti, Carla Viparelli, Marco Casentini, Max Coppeta and Nicola Evangelisti) at the Lancaster Museum of Art and History (MOAH) from Saturday, August 26 through Sunday, October 22.
MOAH will host an opening reception for "Estate Italiana" on Saturday, August 26, from 4 – 6 p.m., and the public is invited to view the exhibition and meet each artist.
The exhibition will celebrates the rich and vibrant history of Italian artistic tradition and is part of a cultural exchange program between the Lancaster Museum and ART1307, an arts institution headquartered in Naples, Italy. The exchange began in 2015 when ART1307 hosted an exhibition originating at MOAH. This summer’s exhibition features a breadth of work including paintings, sculptures, video installations, and murals.
Guest curator Cynthia Penna writes, “There is no doubt that the great and immense history of Italian art hovers like a heavy and complex cloud over artists today.” Like the sons or daughters who live in the shadow of a famous parent, many contemporary Italian artists are crushed under the weight of the legacy of such masters as Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci, or Raphael just to name a few.
Estate Italiana is generously supported by the Lancaster Museum and Public Art Foundation, ART 1307, Best Western – Desert Poppy Inn, Hunter Alfa Romeo/Fiat, Fregoso Outdoor Foundation, Visco Financial Insurance Services, LookUp, and the Italian Cultural Institute of Los Angeles.
While Museum admission is free, the suggested donation is $5 for adults and $3 for students and seniors with valid ID.
