Exhibition to be on display from July through September 2011

NEW YORK CITY, July 6th, 2011- Gensler, the global architecture, design,

planning and consulting firm, announces today that it has partnered with the

Institute of Classical Architecture & Art (ICAA) for the newest in-office

exhibition. The exhibit, The Classical Ideal, is curated by ICAA Fellows Briana

Miller, Steve Bass, and Andy Taylor, and will be on display at Gensler in New

York through September this year. It is viewable by appointment.

“Gensler's art program and educational platform is built on establishing a

diverse appreciation of the arts. We learn from both contemporary ideas and

historical influences. Classical architecture reminds us of the rigor of our

profession and the role it has played in the foundation of culture and

design. We are pleased to house the current exhibit and support the ICAA's

mission,” shares Gensler Principal and ICAA Advisor Tom Vecchione.

The Classical Ideal exhibition features a myriad of drawings, paintings,

renderings, plaster casts, sculpture and prints. The exhibit’s pieces on display

celebrate both the history and the future of classicism as a living language

for artistic expression. From the 17th century until the early 20th century,

artists and architects received rigorous classical training at the École des

Beaux-Arts and worked collaboratively to create some of the most well

known buildings and notable works of art. Today, they continue to practice

and teach in this tradition throughout the world. The exhibition presents a

sampling of student, instructor, and practitioner work, as well as pedagogical

pieces from the ICAA and its fine art and design branches, the Grand Central

Academy of Art and the Beaux-Arts Atelier, respectively.

“The ICAA is delighted to showcase these works at the Gensler office, and for

this chance to tell the story of contemporary classicism and its practice in

America today. We believe that sustaining the lessons of the past, and

drawing from cultural memory as parts of a modern architectural toolbox, are

worthy missions. This exhibit encourages us to that educational end,” says

Institute president, Paul Gunther.

For additional information, or to schedule an appointment to see the ICAA

exhibition, The Classical Ideal, please contact Lauren Davis or Jenn Hearon at

Gensler. Appointments are available Monday-Thursday, between 9am and

5pm. The office is located at 1230 Avenue of the Americas, Suite 1500, New

York, New York.

Best of two cities

photos are views of Kelly Drive, along the river behind the Philadelphia Art museum. So far one of my favorite places to go in Philly. Great place to ride bikes and amazingly beautiful at sunset.

Philadelphia is the home of my new studio space. Im renovating an old carriage stables into a beautiful, livable studio space with two other studio mates. Pictures and more info coming soon.

here are two amazing views of NY city.

And I am spending my weekends in gorgeous New York. I am still teaching at the Grand Central Academy friday evenings (cast drawing/painting) and Saturdays (cast sculpture). With the benefits and beauty of both cities I couldn't ask for more.
