Fine Arts Faculty Display Fine Skill

Nessun Dorma

If a picture is worth a thousand words, a Gallery 61 exhibit may be worth an entire textbook. At the opening reception of the Fine Arts Faculty Exhibition on April 12 at NYIT-Manhattan, 17 faculty members from the Old Westbury and Manhattan campuses displayed their latest works of art, which included paintings, drawings, sculptures, photography, and installations. The annual event has served as a crucial learning experience for NYIT students for more than 30 years, bringing to life many concepts taught in the classroom.

"Students hear our words and our theories but they don't always get a full-fledged understanding of what we say to them until it takes a visual form," says Fine Arts Chair Peter Voci. "This event illustrates that we are passionate and serious about our personal artwork. And that inspires them."

Pictured is "Nessun Dorma," a sculpture created by Voci that was carved out of one piece of black cherrywood.
