The Italian American Museum in Little Italy is kicking-off the New Year with a presentation of architectural renderings and a model for its anticipated expansion, given by Dr. Joseph V. Scelsa, Founder and President.
Construction on this project is scheduled to begin this year, and slated for completion in 2019. The new space will encompass four levels that will include permanent and temporary exhibition space, an auditorium for film screenings, lectures, presentations, meetings, and theatrical, music and dance performances. The Museum’s mission will celebrate modern-day Italian culture, with exhibitions and programs that feature artists, authors and thinkers from Italy.
The new space will quadruple its current size, and be located at the current location with an entrance on Mulberry Street.
The New Italian American Museum: Architectural Renderings and Model for the Forthcoming Newly Designed Museum will take place on Thursday, January 11 from 6-8pm. If you missed the Design Exhibit, check out the renderings of the new museum at here.
