The Italian American Museum cordially invites you to attend
the opening reception for «The New Italian American Museum:
Architectural Renderings and Model for the Forthcoming Newly Designed Museum» by Founder and President, Dr. Joseph V. Scelsa on Thursday, January 11 from 6 — 8PM.

The Italian American Museum, located in Little Italy since 2007, is about to embark on a major project that will quadruple its size at its current location. But it is more than a physical expansion. It is an endeavor to ensure that Little Italy will have a permanent anchor institution that will preserve and promote not only the neighborhood, but the legacy of Italians in America from Peter Caesar Alberti in 1635 to present-day immigrants who continue to seek opportunity on these shores.

The Museum’s mission will also be to celebrate modern-day Italian culture with exhibitions and programs that feature artists, authors and thinkers from Italy.

With construction beginning in early 2018 and slated for completion in 2019, the new Italian American Museum will encompass four levels in a new structure located on Mulberry St. It will feature a majestic street-level entrance, four levels for permanent and temporary exhibitions, and an auditorium for film screenings, lectures, presentations, meetings and theatrical, music and dance performances.

For reservations please call the Museum at 212.965.9000, send an email to [email protected] or fax 347.810.1028. Refreshments will be served.
