Sandra Ramos Artist Talk

Join us in welcoming internationally acclaimed artist Sandra Ramos for an inspiring evening. Explore the remarkable exhibition and hear about her work and life as a Cuban artist.

Sandra Ramos is of a generation of  artists from Havana whose works potently refer to the dream and reality of exile and the emotional scarring and loss of family ties and friendship as a result of the continuing flow of refugees from Cuba. She portrays herself in much of her work as a Cuban school girl, using the genre of self-portraiture to contemplate the humor, challenge, and possibility of life in Cuba.


$12 Admission

Social Commentary Through Art and Media

The second edition of the Social Commentary Through Art and Media will once again bring together leaders of our community to open up frank dialog about the challenges our communities face and the role contemporary art plays in impacting social change. The discussion will explore issues that are particularly American and tragically timely: gun violence, school shootings, and contemporary masculinity.

Community leaders Suzanne Roberts, James A. White Sr., and Sierra Austin will lead a conversation on these issues with our current exhibition Robert Beck | Robert Buck: States of America serving as the starting point; the drawings, sculpture, video and installation work reflect the artist’s sensitive investigations into how we respond to the diverse social and cultural challenges today.

Art has the unique ability to reflect our contemporary experiences, and this series aims to expand our mission to provide opportunities to foster cultural understanding through the arts. While there is much more work to do be done, we believe that open conversation and dialogue is integral to the health of our communities. We invite members of the community to visit the exhibition and come together in contemplation and conversation.


Space is limited and RSVP is required.

Admission is regular cost to visit the Pizzuti Collection: $12 Adult, $10 Seniors, and students are always free. You will be free to explore the exhibitions before and after the event. RSVP to Mark Zuzik, Programs Coordinator at 614-300-3542 or

Patricia Dominguez: Eres un Princeso Artist Talk and Preview

Join us in welcoming Chilean artist Patricia Dominguez  for a special artist talk and preview of her large-scale video installation. Eres un Princeso is a rich and compelling video which is an investigation of Spanish horses once owned by Colombian drug lords. The work reflects upon the meanings invested in the animals as powerful possessions and remnants of a colonial past. Not only do the horses take on a quasi-mythical status thanks to their associations with a criminal culture, they are celebrated for their otherness as animals that differ due to their gait and style of presentation. 


$12 Admission
Complimentary for Pizzuti Collection members and students

Space is limited and an RSVP is required
RSVP to or 614-300-3542

The exhibition is sponsored in part by Carolyn McCall & David Renner, Corde Robinson & Grant Morrow, Judi & Jim Stillwell, Cathe Kobacker, Michael Rayden & Diane Nye, and the Greater Columbus Arts Council and city of Columbus
