Special Event    
NY's Golden Age of Bridges 3
 September 29  
Many artists over the years have painted the bridges of New York City, but few have been as singularly committed to painting all nine of New York's major bridges as Antonio Masi. The artist will give a demonstration on his approach to his large-scale paintings (usually 60"x40") in watercolor.  Following the demonstration, attendees can obtain an autographed book of "New York's Golden Age of Bridges", which he co-authored with Joan Marans Dim and is published by Fordham Press and Oxford Press.
His work is currently on exhibit at the NY Transit Museum through October 7.
