Event Details

Philomena Marano, studio assistant to artist Robert Indiana, joins us for a discussion about the unique medium of paper used to create costumes and sets for "The Mother of Us All" (1976).

Robert Indiana’s work on "The Mother of Us All" is featured in the special exhibition "Art of the Stage: Picasso to Hockney". The opera was a Bicentennial project and a collaboration between Gertrude Stein and composer Virgil Thomson. It tells the story of Susan B. Anthony’s fight for women’s suffrage as it mixes characters, fictional and non fictional from different time periods in American history. The maquettes in papier colle (or cut paper), a medium well suited to express the early American art form popular during the time in which the story unravels.

Artist Philomena Marano holds a BFA from Pratt Institute, created the winning poster for the first Spirit of Brooklyn poster competition, and is a master of papier collé, the elegant cut paper technique she learned as a studio assistant to preeminent artist Robert Indiana. Her work has been exhibited in numerous New York galleries and represented in private, corporate and museum collections, including the Brooklyn Museum.
