Antonio Masi and the Bridges in New York City

Antonio Masi, one of The Artist’s Magazine‘s featured artists in the September 2008 issue has a new exhibit at the New York Transit Museum, Brooklyn Heights that portrays all the beauty of the bridges in New York City. Masi’s grandfather actually helped build the Queensboro Bridge, igniting the younger Masi’s fascination with bridges. Masi truly fell in love with the bridges of New York City when he immigrated from Italy to the United States in 1947. The exhibit, titled “New York’s Golden Age of Bridges: Paintings by Antonio Masi,” displays all the glory of the city’s bridges as seen through Masi’s eyes.

Watch Christina Ha of NYC–ARTS discuss Antonio Masi’s exhibit on PBS’s “Art Students League and the Seaport Museum.”

“New York’s Golden Age of Bridges: Paintings by Antonio Masi” is on view now through October 7, 2012, at the New York Transit Museum and features 26 of Masi’s watercolor paintings.
