Arturo Vittori and Andreas Vogler will lecture at ‘The Sculpture Center’ in Cleveland next 25th April. The Sculpture Center and the Italian Consulate invite you to a talk by the Italian and Swiss architects Arturo Vittori and Andreas Vogler founders of the studio Architecture and Vision. The architecture and design practice specializes in aerospace, architecture and art and the crossovers of these fields. The studio recently has been crossing borders into the sculpture field with the 30m high portable tower of the ‘Machina di Santa Rosa di Viterbo’, The ‘AtlasCoelestis’ installation at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, the public sculpture ‘LaFenice’ in Messina, Sicily. On the
cutting edge of space art is their kinetic sculpture ‘AtlasCoelestisZeroG’, created specifically for microgravity environments, which was carried into space on NASA’s final mission of the space shuttle Endeavor and inaugurated on the International Space Station in May 2011. Their very popular traveling exhibition, ‘Architecture and Vision: from Pyramids to Spacecraft’, was shown in Cleveland’s Great Lakes Science Center last winter and is on view April 20-May 15, 2012, at the University of Cincinnati’s College of DAAP. After the talk in the Euclid Avenue Building Bay 3, join Arturo Vittori and Andreas Vogler for an informal reception and test drive one of five Cinquecento Fiats, courtesy of FIAT of Strongsville, that will be on display in our parking lot.

Reservations by phone or email to The Sculpture Center are required.
