Exhibitions

HGA Gallery, Rapson Hall

Andrea Palladio -- 500 years
January 16-February 28, 2010
Opening reception Saturday, January 16, 6-9 p.m.
This exhibition was organized in conjunction with the occasion of the 500th anniversary of the birth of "the most imitated architect in history" and whose "influence on the development of English and American architecture probably has been greater than that of all Renaissance architects combined." The show consists of photographs displaying Palladio's architectural projects for private residences in the Veneto Region, provided by the Istituto Regionale Ville Venete and highlights the stylistic evolution of the architect's more than forty years of activity.
