'Year Of Italian Culture' Comes To Westchester

WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. – The White Plains St. Patrick’s Day Parade may be Saturday, but 2013 is the Year of Italian Culture in the U.S. and Westchester County is teaming up with The Puglia Center of America to present an exhibition of Italian art from March 11 to 15.

ArtsWestchester, on 31 Mamaroneck Ave., will house “Magic Colors of Italy,” an exhibit by a five-member art group called the Arcane Movement. The Italian government declared it the Year of Italian Culture in 2013.

“This will be a great exhibit and one, I can assure you, you don’t have to be Italian to appreciate,” County Executive Robert Astorino said in a statement.

In addition to the exhibit, there will be concerts, photo exhibits and a Puglia Food & Wine Show in Westchester, Maestro Luciano Lamonarca, president and founder of the Puglia Center of America said in a statement. The Puglia Center of America promotes the Puglia region of Italy in the U.S.

The exhibit opens at 7 p.m. Monday and features artwork that has been described as spiritual, mysterious and dreamy without being surreal, according to a county release.
