One of the benefits of an internship at the Center for Italian Modern Art is immediate access to SoHo, – CIMA’s Summer 2016 Interns review a rebirth of the arts in this ever-changing neighborhood.
This year, for the twelfth edition of Open House New York, the event that opens the doors of hundreds of New York’s most architecturally and culturally significant spaces, with guided tours, lectures and performances, the Italian Center for Modern Art welcomed over 350 visitors.
As the summer comes to an end, the Soho Arts Network is gearing up to introduce some exciting new shows and exhibitions that will be worth the trip downtown! Kathleen Farrell, Summer 2015 CIMA Intern, took the time during her time at the Center for Italian Modern Art to explore some of these arts spaces.
The Soho Arts Network was born with the mission “to support Soho’s creative history and growing artistic community.” It was initiated by CIMA to combat the misperception that Soho has “lost” its artistic community, by providing a platform for creative collaborations among institutions. Erica Cecilia Blume, CIMA summer intern, took the time to explore some of these spaces.
