Experience this stunning exhibit of contemporary mosaic artwork from the Scuola Mosaicisti del Friuli in Italy. In its first US appearance, the collection showcases the work of young mosaic artists who redefine the ancient tradition of mosaic art with innovative methods and materials. Curator Guglielmo Zanette explains: “50 FACES is a unique blend of art, technique, tradition and culture. It is an exquisite innovation in the contemporary art scene.” These compelling artworks use a variety of media including bone, shells, metal and fiber, which are artfully combined with the traditional mosaic material of marble and smalto. Viewers will delight in the expressive personality and character captured in each of these mosaic portraits.

The 50 FACES collection includes Northern California luminaries Robin Williams, Carlos Santana, Sean Penn and Steve Jobs. There are icons of art, culture and music including Frida Kahlo, Yayoi Kusama, J.M. Basquiat and Jimi Hendrix. Viewers will marvel at celebrity super-heros like Angelina Jolie and Robert Downey Jr. and actors like Johnny Depp and Leonardo DiCaprio.
