Special Installation Spotlight: Walter Rossi’s Titanic & New York Skyline

December 2021–June 2022

The installation spotlight, The Worlds of Walter Rossi, features the work Titanic and New YorkSkyline. Both works will be on view in the Museum’s court.

Painter and sculptor Walter Rossi earned his doctorate in architecture studying under Bruno Zevi at Rome University. Afterwards he moved to London and then Brooklyn, where he continues to live and work today. Rossi began integrating movement into his sculpture in 2000, creating theatrical presentations that evoke humor while engaging viewers in profound and often unexpected ways. An avid traveler, he scours toy stores and flea markets around the world, collecting elements to incorporate into his fantastical miniature vignettes. His kinetic sculptures have been featured in our A Cache of Kinetic Art series of exhibitions, including Simply Steampunk (2019), Tiny Intricacies (2020), and Timeless Movements (2022).

Rossi’s work has been shown in the United States and abroad: Palazzo delle Esposizioni, Rome; Greater London Arts Council, UK; Brooklyn Museum, New York; American Academy in Rome, Italy; Museum of Arts and Design, New York; Museum of Contemporary Art, Miami; Heller Gallery, New York; Agora Gallery, New York; and Morris Museum, New Jersey.
