Andy Warhol & Steve Kaufman Exhibitions To Support Earthquake Relief Efforts In Italy

August 30, 2016 / Riccione, Italy -- The City of Noto, Company Ideas Fenice, and the Municipality of Riccione, and the Rosini Gutman Foundation will donate € 1.00 from each full-price ticket from the current WARHOL-KAUFMAN art exhibitions to support earthquake victims in central Italy. This decision reinforces an earlier initiative by the Ministry of Culture to donate all ticket sales made by state museums on August 28, 2016.

Rather than be limited to one day, the organizers of the exhibitions “Warhol È Noto—Warhol’s Famous” and “Andy Warhol & Steve Kaufman: Marilyn & The Movie Stars" in Riccione extended the collection period for two consecutive months to ensure a tangible contribution toward humanitarian efforts.

All who visit the Warhol exhibition in Noto now through October 30, and the Warhol-Kaufman exhibition in Riccione through October 16 will, immediately upon cultural enrichment, validate their solidarity with everyone affected by the earthquake.

Involved will be all schools in the cities of Noto and Riccione, its cultural associations, and all community associations. By organizing synergistically for support, they also help strengthen the network via the sites dedicated to these two shows.

“Solidarity is an state of mind and a philosophy of life, and according to those of us working in the field of Arts and Culture, in the face of tragedies like this we must act immediately,” said Gianni Filippini, Director of Company Ideas Fenice, and Gianfranco Rosini, Director General of the Rosini Gutman Foundation, in a statement.

“We share the production efforts of the Warhol exhibition to implement a concrete initiative of solidarity that can help people affected by the earthquake,” said Corrado Bonfanti, Mayor of Noto.

"The Art and Culture should also serve to educate in moral and civic issues, and this tragedy may be yet another opportunity to demonstrate the Italian people are able to act quickly to address emergencies that arise,” said Renata Tosi, Mayor of Riccione.

Both exhibitions, “Andy Warhol & Steve Kaufman: Marilyn & The Movie Stars” through October 16 at the Villa Mussolini, Via Milano 40, Riccione, Italy, and “Warhol È Noto—Warhol’s Famous” through through October 30 at the Ex Convitto Ragusa, Corso Vittorio Emanuele, Noto, Italy are a collaboration of American Pop Art, Inc., Steve Kaufman Art Licensing LLC, and the Rosini-Gutman Collection.

Steve Kaufman Art Featured in “Warhol È Noto,” 120 Works in the Heart of the Sicilian Baroque

May 6, 2016 / Noto, Italy -- American Pop Art, Inc. and Steve Kaufman Art Licensing LLC are delighted to announce the exhibition, “Warhol È Noto—Warhol’s Famous” May 6 through August 28, 2016 at the Ex Convitto Ragusa, Corso Vittorio Emanuele, Noto, Italy. Approximately 120 unique works will be on display from the Rosini-Gutman Collection.

“Warhol’s Famous” was born as a need to want to tell, and to acquaint the general public with, the communicative power of one of the most eclectic personalities and important artists of the 1900’s: Andy Warhol. The exhibition is produced by Giuseppe Stagnitta and Company Ideas Phoenix and Cultural Association Studio Soligo in collaboration with the Municipality of Noto, Unesco World Heritage Site.

“Warhol’s Famous” allows us to trace his career from the fifties, when Andy Warhol made his debut in commercial art and soon worked as an illustrator for prestigious magazines and as a commercial artist. We begin with 20 early design drawings by the artist, to Campbell's Soup and Brillo, then on to the recognizable portraits of Marilyn Monroe, Ingrid Bergman, Liz Taylor, and Mao. Also on display are the famous photos printed on Kodak paper rolls, business art, and many other prestigious unique pieces that propelled Warhol to the international scene.
