FIDIA FALASCHETTI’S, “WOR(D) IN PROGRESS,” EXHIBIT
Friday, July 14 from 7 to 10 p.m.
ATLANTA (July 5, 2017) – Westside Cultural Arts Center (WCAC) blurs the lines of political correctness by bringing art and irony to West Midtown on Friday, July 14 from 7 to 10 p.m., with the opening of its latest exhibit by artist, Fidia Falaschetti. “Wor(d) in Progress,” featuring DL Warfield, boldly confronts society with pieces entitled “Freaky Mouse,” “Meanie Mouse” and “Poker Cheap” along with many others, putting a spin on iconic classics through sarcasm and contemporary art.
“I’m honored to be able to visit Atlanta and display my work in a fresh new environment,” said artist, Fidia Falaschetti. “I hope to put a twist on modern day classics while enticing light-hearted conversation.”
“Wor(d) In Progress” will feature 44 works of sculpture, print, tapestry and video installation inspired by modern society and Falaschetti’s work strives to bring awareness to social issues through provocative, cynical and ironic word plays. The exhibit will be open and free to the public until Tuesday, August 1.
“We are ecstatic to exhibit such a fresh and upbeat body of work,” said Dr. James L. Chappuis, founder of WCAC.
“‘Wor(d) in Progress’ will push boundaries in an original and humorous manner, something we haven’t offered before at WCAC.”
