Magazzino Italian Art is Upstate New York’s new great art escape
If you're ever looking for the perfect art-focused day trip, check out Magazzino Italian Art. The new warehouse space in Cold Spring (NY) opened last June, joining the ranks of Mass Moca, Storm King art center and Dia Beacon in the Hudson River Valley. Devoted to Post-war and Contemporary Italian Art, the museum houses works sourced by Giorgio Spanu and Nancy Olnick, who own one of America's largest collections of Arte Povera--a contemporary art movement that took place between the end of the 1960s and the beginning of the 1970s in major cities throughout Italy. Jetsetter recently caught up with the duo to discuss their passion for Italian art and mission behind the Magazzino project.
