|The dwindling crowd at dusk at the McKim Mead and White building,|
The American Academy in Rome
|LaBombard explaining her work on the greening of Rome's land.|
|Newell's dark space photos|
|Noordkamp's film on Gibellina, a Sicilian city reconstructed in the 1980s|
and perhaps killed by the good intentions of architects and planners of that era.
|Wine, kids and views - along with the art.|
|One of Dobbins' puppet shows.|
|Reynolds' film of his artist-and-model|
These are just 6 of the 16 studios we visited. We also found time for the villa's spectacular views, and the free flowing wine and almonds.
|Serving up the wine.|
If you are in Rome at the end of May/beginning of June, don't miss next year's AARome's Open Studios. A footnote - the concept of the Open Studios was begun by our friend Dana Prescott, then the Andrew Heiskell Arts Director at the American Academy in Rome, now Executive Director of Civitella Ranieri Foundation, which hosts fellows in a spectacular castle in Umbria.
To next year... Dianne
We're always pleased to see Rome the Second Time
on an Academy bookshelf.
