Chuck Close likes to push the boundaries of different techniques, processes and materials, working with various collaborators to achieve his vision.
The Museum of Art of the city of Ravenna’s mosaic exhibition presents Chuck Close’s new series of mosaic artworks as well as related works, such as prints, tapestries and photographs.
The Chuck Close MAR Ravenna exhibit also documents the production process of these works by fabricators Mosaika Art and Design and Magnolia Editions, as well as the 12 works they produced for the 86th St. Subway Station at Second Avenue in New York City.
