In partnership with the Rizzoli bookstore and La Scuola d'Italia NYC, Soho’s Center For Italian Modern Art, presented their debut “Arts and Letters Awards,” highlighting student literary and artistic responses (drawing, poetry, essay and narrative) to CIMA’s current exhibition, Staging Injustice: Italian Art 1880-1917.

Student work was evaluated by a jury consisting of CIMA staff and teaching faculty from La Scuola d’Italia and the winner was announced in a special awards ceremony on Saturday, June 4th. Participation counted as an assessment grade in a discipline (i.e. Italian Literature, English Literature, History, Philosophy, Art), thus integrating CIMA’s educational programming with the school’s curriculum.  

CIMA hopes to expand this program to other schools as they continue building out their educational programming.
