In its third season CIMA’s annual exhibition is dedicated to Giorgio Morandi (1890-1964), one of the best known Italian artists of the 20th century.The exhibition focuses on the artist’s rarely seen works from the 1930s—the decade when Morandi reached full artistic maturity and developed his distinctive pictorial language.
CIMA is part of NYFA’s Arts Business Incubator (ABI) Program, which will see the inaugural cohort of seven participating businesses undergo rigorous training in the essentials of starting and running an arts-based enterprise. Find out more about the businesses and ABI program byclicking here.
