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.
