Internationally renowned 3D pop artist Charles Fazzino joins the Holocaust Memorial & Tolerance Center of Nassau County (HMTC) for an art talk and demonstration. On this special evening, visit Charles in his studio in New Rochelle, NY where he will show you his collection of Jewish-themed artwork, created over the span of his career – a collection that celebrates the history, the culture, and the hope of the Jewish people. He will demonstrate his unique three-dimensional technique, discuss the evolution of his signature vibrant and detailed style, and answer your questions.
During his more-than-thirty years as an artist, Fazzino has created a vast and broad art collection encompassing many different cultural genres. His Jewish-themed artwork makes up one of his most compelling niche collections. In 2017, he was commissioned by the Holocaust Memorial and Tolerance Center to put together an exhibition titled “Heroes of the Holocaust.” The project was punctuated by a month-long museum exhibition and an opening night fundraiser that generated tens of thousands of dollars for HMTC. The remainder of his resume includes painting some of our most high-profile events including twenty-one Super Bowls for the NFL, seventeen MLB All-Star Games and the GRAMMY Awards, and creating public installations at JFK International Airport, Hassenfeld Children’s Hospital, and around the globe.
This virtual visit with Charles Fazzino will also be a fundraiser, as a portion of the proceeds from any artwork sold in conjunction with this event will be donated to HMTC.Buy tickets/get more info now
