May 10, 2018

“New Work from the New Harmony National Print Invitational” is now on display in Indiana Tech’s Franco D’Agostino Art Gallery. This exhibit will be on display through June 30, 2018.

“New Work from the New Harmony National Print Invitational” is a portfolio of prints originally exhibited at the New Harmony Gallery of Contemporary Art in New Harmony, Indiana. The gallery is operated in partnership with the University of Southern Indiana, and in the winter of 2014 the gallery organized an exhibition in celebration of the city’s bicentennial. Curated by Brett Anderson, University of Southern Indiana professor of printmaking, the exhibition featured artists from across the nation in a portfolio print exchange. New Harmony highlights the vibrancy and excellence of contemporary printmaking in the United States.

The D’Agostino Art Gallery is open seven days a week: Monday through Friday, 8 a.m.-6 p.m.; Saturday from 7:30 a.m.-noon; and Sunday from 4-6 p.m. It is located on the lower level of Indiana Tech’s Snyder Academic Center. The collection is part of the Fort Wayne Museum of Art’s traveling exhibition.

The D’Agostino Art Gallery was made possible by a donation from Franco D’Agostino, a 1962 civil engineering graduate of Indiana Tech. Mr. D’Agostino is chairman/CEO of DAYCO Holding Corporation, a company he helped develop in 1971. DAYCO, with its world headquarters located in Miami,  is a construction company and real estate development firm dedicated to large-scale industrial and civil projects. It is also known as a leader in urban real estate development in Venezuela and other countries within the Americas.
