Museo Italo Americano
Museo Italo Americano presents two exhibits at Fort Mason Center For Arts & Culture. One exhibit is a revival of the photographic survey, “In Cerca di Una Nuova Vita (In Search Of A New Life): Italian Immigrations From Italy To California,” first shown in 2009. (See the Digital Catalogue.)
The other exhibit, “Beniamino Bufano: So Be It In Peace — A Retrospective From Our Permanent Collection,” highlights selections from the Museo’s holdings of lithographs, sculptures, sketches, and works on paper by Beniamino Bufano, a renowned San Francisco artist. (Experience the Online Exhibit.)
