"Festa", Exhibition of Photographs of Italian-American Festivals, Now Extended Through October 23, 2011

The exhibition of photographs from my Italian-American Festival series at the Italian American Museum, located at 155 Mulberry Street, right in the heart of New York's Little Italy, has been extended through Sunday October 23, 2011. The work explores the social and cultural implications of the endurance of this tradition, as well as addressing the contradictions of existence inherent in living between two diverse cultures. Signed copies of my companion book, La Festa: Italian Festivals in America, are also available for sale in the Museum bookstore. Please stop by if you haven't yet had a chance to see this show.

The Italian American Museum is located at 155 Mulberry Street (corner of Mulberry and Grand Streets), New York, NY 10013. They can be reached at (212) 965-9000 or e-mail at Visit their website at

•Museum hours are Saturday and Sunday, Noon-6:00 PM.
The Museum will also be open on Monday October 10, 2011 from Noon-6:00 PM in celebration of Columbus Day.
