Reinterpreting Italian American Public Art in New York City at FIT. Eduardo Montes-Bradley will be participating in this event on June 10 and June 17 at 3pm to discuss the Piccirilli brothers in New York and showcase excerpts from his documentary film, "The Italian Factor," on which he has been working for the last two years. Presented by the National Endowment For The Humanities and the State University of New York. The goal of this workshop is to help educators in higher education create place-based lesson plans that encourage students to think critically about monuments, landmarks, and public artworks as they relate to issues such as immigration, ethnic identity, and contested memory.
