The second new piece to preview in Verona this autumn is "Heirloom Verona. 70 days" A three dimensional botanical illustration of an imagined heirloom Verona tomato. To be worn as a brooch. This work will be shown in "Brooching Verona"
"In concurrence with the annual Art-Verona fair, more than twenty brooches by Italian and foreign artists made of unconventional and unusual materials in addition to metals, will be displayed in shop windows in the old town center of Verona from October 8, 2013 to October 20, 2013."
"These artifacts can be considered art works thanks to their significant emotional and intellectual contents. Focus of the event will be the concurrent exhibition "Enchanted Dialogues: Brooches in Tribute of Verona", held at the deconsecrated church of San Pietro in Archivolto, next to the Cathedral of Verona. Overall "Brooching Verona" is a rare opportunity for citizens and tourists to approach the world, little-known yet deserving more attention, of " contemporary jewels." In addition to that, it contributes to create a lively and vibrant atmosphere in the historical streets of Verona. It is organized by associazione Nurò in collaboration with Verona' s Cathedral under both Verona Town Council’s and Province’s Patronage. It is possible to find a map of the stores displaying the brooches at associazione Nurò’s web site.
