Virginio L. Ferrari is an internationally acclaimed contemporary sculptor who has exhibited his work in Argentina, Belgium, Brazil, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, and throughout the United States. Ferrari's monumental sculptures can be found on street corners and public parks, at universities and libraries, corporations and in private collections in Chicago and all over the world.
Marco G. Ferrari is a video artist and filmmaker based in Chicago, IL and Rome, Italy. He received his M.F.A. from the University of Chicago in 2013 and currently balances his studio practice as Lecturer in Communications & Media Studies at John Cabot University (Rome, Italy), freelance cinematographer, VJ, and curator of V. Ferrari Foundation.
The V. Ferrari Foundation, currently in its initial planning phase, will become the official museum of sculptor Virginio Ferrari. The nonprofit art organization based in Chicago, Illinois, will function to educate the public of Virginio’s extensive work in the field of contemporary sculpture and public art, while seeking to be an active organization in the production of public artworks, exhibition programming, and community based initiatives—bridging Chicago and Italy to inaugurate projects where artists and scholars collaborate to engage with the public and revitalize ideas and spaces.
