Extra, extra! Read all about it. Guess who is helping make headlines in the New York Times? Yours truly, George Apap Painting! This is our Cold Spring project we did the painting on.

This space is a work of art, especially that our paint brushes touched it! All kidding aside, this space will hold beautiful artworks of talented Italian artists. The New York Times article shares the story behind this project and features some interesting information about Arte Povera- the 1960s Italian avant-garde movement whose proponents created minimalist works have been brought to America.
They call the space located in Cold Spring, NY "Magazzino" which means warehouse in Italian, an unassuming designation that intentionally avoids any association with museums, institutions, art galleries or commercial enterprises.
Another fun fact? Remember when our team member, Arek, was traveling & in the Madrid airport while on vacation and came across a familiar face? Project manager of this project was Miguel (Madrid is Miguel’s hometown).
This space is set to open next year & exhibit about 400 works from Nancy Olnick & Giorgio Spanu’s substantial collection.
