While most art lovers are familiar with Italy's Renaissance masters, the Italian art movement is still going strong 500 years later. Most notably, the city of Torino (Turin) has established itself as a center of European contemporary art. Now, Miami visitors can experience some of Torino's most talented modern artists with the new exhibit: Gran Torino: Italian Contemporary Art.
The exhibit features Italian artists who have come to the attention of the art world within the last 15 years. The selected works aim to give visitors a taste of the Italian avant-garde movement that has evolved in recent decades. Specifically, museums curators have chosen pieces that explore the ideas of art and time, from a uniquely Italian perspective.
Gran Torino will run through April 17th, 2011 at the Frost Art Museum located at the Florida International University.
