Teatro Carniglia: A Film and Panel Discussion on Jerry Carniglia
July 13, 2017 –
In conjunction with the exhibit, Jerry Carniglia: A Tribute, the Museo Italo Americano together with the Western Chapter of the Italian American Studies Association will host a film and panel discussion on Carniglia’s life and work to highlight the artist’s background, philosophy, and working methods. Panelists will include Oakland artist and curator Anthony Pinata and Carniglia trustee Margaret Fisher of MAFISHCO Theatre Company. The program will begin with the screening of a short documentary film on Jerry’s creative methods and inspiration entitled Painting Rules. The film – soon to be released on DVD – was made by Emmy-nominated, award-winning filmmakers, Marylou and Jerome Bongiorno in 2008, when both they and Jerry were fellows at the MacDowell Colony, one of the country’s leading artist colonies. Audience participation will be encouraged following the film and presentations.
