Marco, Mona and Ed

 ~This year marks the 100th anniversary since the Mona Lisa was stolen from the Louvre museum Miami, August 23, 2011 – Making its U.S. premiere, Miami Dade College’s (MDC) Art Gallery System brings to South Florida an extraordinary exhibition inspired by Leonardo da Vinci’s iconic portrait, the Mona Lisa. The exhibition, Mona Lisa Unveiled, will showcase various interpretations of the classic, created by artists around the world and dating from the 16th Century to modern day.    This exhibition is co-presented by City of Miami Mayor Tomas Regalado and City of Margherita di Savoia (Italy) Mayor Gabriella Carlucci. An invitation-only opening reception will take place at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, August 25, at MDC’s own transcendent work of art, the Freedom Tower. The working media is welcome.  On loan from the Museo Ideale Leonardo da Vinci in Florence, Italy, the exhibition was created and inspired by Alessandro Vezzosi, the museum’s director, and Agnese Sabato, president of the museum’s International Association. In Miami, the exhibition has been made possible with the support of the Consul General of Italy, Marco Rocca, and Gloria Porcella, director of the Galleria Ca’ d’Oro in Rome and Miami.
