I will be exhibiting a selection of photographs from my Italian-American Festival series at the 3rd Annual Ciao Italy Performing Arts Festival in Williamsburg, Brooklyn on Saturday June 19 from 6pm-10pm. Photographer Todd Carroll will also be showing his photographs of Italian folk dance festivals. The event will present a variety of performances of traditional Italian and Italian-inspired music, opera, dance and theater, and will be held at the Associazione San Cono, 233 Ainslie Street, Ground Floor, in the Williamsburg section of Brooklyn. The festival was conceived to create a bridge between the historic Italian community and the community of artists now living and working in the neighborhood. Cost of a festival pass is $25.00, and RSVP is strongly suggested at or 347-338-8852. Special thanks and appreciation to Anabella Lenzu and Todd Carroll for organizing this event in the celebration Italian culture. The evening promises to be an exciting and entertaining experience for all. Ci vediamo alla festa!
