Riccardo Vecchio, artist
How do you respond to New York, and how does art help you think about your environment? Begin by looking at the work of George Bellows, who used a variety of artistic processes to depict New York. Continue with drawing and writing exercises that explore New York's landscape through artworks in the collection and views of the city. End by using these exercises to make a simple print. In each session, contemporary artist Riccardo Vecchio introduces an art-making technique, while expert curators and educators help participants respond to their Museum experiences. This program is held in conjunction with the exhibition George Bellows.
