A Decade of Art and Design by ANTONIO PIO SARACINO

April 10 – May 12, 2023

Maison Gerard presents The Guardians and Beyond, an exhibition celebrating the 10-year anniversary of The Guardians: Hero & Superhero, the colossal sculptures designed by Antonio Pio Saracino and installed at Bryant Park. The exhibition will feature a retrospective of Saracino’s work from the last decade with the Hero & Superhero sculptures as its centerpiece.

In 2013, Saracino was presented with two new opportunities: to produce a symbol of Italy in New York on the occasion of the Year of Italian Culture in the U.S., and to create a public art project for the plaza at 3 Bryant Park. His idea, The Guardians: Hero and Superhero, was the answer to both. Hero was a gift from Italy to the United States, donated by the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs; the Embassy of Italy, Washington, D.C.; and the Consulate General of Italy, New York. Superhero was commissioned by the owner of 3 Bryant Park. 

SEDALLO fabrics presented at the exhibition: AMELIA White, MARIBELLE Red and BOLSENA Denim
