The Institute of Classical Architecture & Classical America and the Virginia Center for Architecture present:
Italian Dressing: Palladio and American Classicism
at the Virginia Center for Architecture’s Branch House
2501 Monument Avenue
June 26th- October 5th, 2008
Adam Van Doren, Villa Poiana, Vicenza (1988) watercolor with black ink over graphite on wove paper, 15 in. x 23 in.
In celebration of Palladio’s remarkable achievements as a gifted civic architect, the ICA&CA has assembled a unique collection of Palladian inspired works of art and architecture. Curated from work by Institute members, the exhibit consists of sketches, drawings, watercolors, and new projects, both built and un-built, demonstrating the breadth of Palladio’s continuous influence in the United States and abroad. It is the aim of the exhibition to show that there is still a great deal to be learned from Palladio and that perhaps the most relevant aspects of his influence remain to be discovered.
