PATRICIA CRONIN AND THE LURE OF ANTIQUITY
07 November 2019 / 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Join us at CIMA as artist Patricia Cronin and Guggenheim Museum Senior Curator Vivien Greene discuss Cronin’s work as it relates to Marino Marini: Arcadian Nudes, exploring topics including feminism, public art, and antique sources. The program is sponsored by CIMA and the Civitella Ranieri Foundation, with which we have an Affiliated Fellowship.
Attendees will also have the opportunity to sample a variety of Santi wines. The Italian winery has been a leading producer in the Valpolicella area since the 1800’s. With its dedication to quality and its unique aging process, Santi offers a series of beautiful wines for every palate. Small bites will accompany the wines prior to the start of this talk.
