EVENT DESCRIPTION:
 
The Art of Devotion II 
 
Considering the vast heritage of Catholic art and architecture, Anthony Visco takes us through his career as a vocational artist and liturgical designer, his education and today’s need for education in the sacred arts. In this PowerPoint lecture, Mr. Visco will discuss his personal journey to secure the perceptual and the technical training and how the artist must seek both the practical and speculative knowledge in order to convey the Good, the Beautiful, and the True. 
 
 
Dal Vivo 
 
As the founder and director of the Atelier for the Sacred Arts, Maestro Anthony Visco offers his expertise in designing and fabrication of liturgical art as well offering his classes and workshops to both groups and to individuals. 
 
Upon graduation from the University of the Arts, he received Fulbright–Hayes Grant to travel and study in Florence Italy, where he began his studies of the Florentine school of art and architecture and their study of the classical. In 1975, he was awarded the Elizabeth T. Greensheilds Grant for figurative sculpture and has received the coveted Arthur Ross Award in both 1984 and again in 1996 for sculpture within a classical architectural setting. In 2014, National Sculpture society awarded him the Henry Hering Memorial Medal.
