After the suggested visit at BLUM in SOHO,to realize that Famous Artist's choice was not so...Bad" ...here another artist being inspired by Bierstadt
"Art has always needed patrons and House of Campari fits the bill quite nicely. The Campari Commissions for 2007 were recently on display in Miami, featuring the Fallen Bierstadt by Valerie Hegarty and the Mosaic Mask (XXX) by Nathan Mabry. Hegarty’s piece is a reconstruction of a landscape by Albert Bierstadt that she pushes several steps further, into destruction. Mabry creates a mask out of coloured pencil and mylar, then embellishes the piece with Swarovski crystals. Featured along with the commissions was an exhibition of works from New York and Los Angeles galleries called Distinctive Messengers, as well as an amazing site-specific work by Andrew Schoultz."
