Italian-American Icons

Contemporary mosaic portraits that offer a fresh take on an ancient medium

Opening Reception:
* Saturday, September 11, 5:00-7:00 pm

Exhibition Dates:
* September 11 – November 7

Experience this stunning exhibition of contemporary mosaic portraits created by the talented young artists of the internationally-known Scuola Mosaicisti del Friuli based in Northern Italy. The work of these skilled artists utilizes a mix of found materials and age-old mosaic art techniques to create iconic portraits that offer a fresh take on an ancient medium.

Their methods aptly nod to the art of assemblage, a medium embraced by many of the most notable artists from Northern California such as Robert Hudson and Jess.

The artists have created 22 mosaic portraits of Italian-American cultural icons of our age. Their choice of subject matter ranges from the well-known Italian-American actor Sylvester Stallone to singer-songwriter Alicia Keys, whose mother is of Italian-Irish descent.

The exhibition is presented in collaboration with Associazione Naonis and the Italian Film Festival. Curated by Guglielmo ZanetteItalian American Icons is a remarkable collection of mosaic portraits that highlight the skill and artistry of these emerging artists. Along with an array of palpable influences—from agriculture, film and business—we celebrate the cultural affinities of Marin County’s Italian heritage through this exhibition.
