Magazzino Italian Art is a private warehouse art space in Cold Spring, NY, dedicated to housing and widening public appreciation and education of Post-war and Contemporary Italian art in the United States.
Magazzino, meaning warehouse in Italian, will host select works from the Olnick Spanu Collection, most of which have never been exhibited in the United States. Through the permanent collection, as well as rotating temporary exhibitions, community events, and collaboration with neighboring institutions, Magazzino hopes to establish a foundation for Contemporary Italian art in the Hudson Valley.
Spanish architect Miguel Quismondo conceived the museum space from an existing computer manufacturing warehouse. The new building draws architectural components from the previous structure, repurposed within a larger design that doubled the square footage of the former space by completing the original L-shape into a rectangle, leaving a courtyard in the center. The state-of-the-art facility features more than 18,000 square feet of exhibition space as well as a library with more than 5,000 publications of Italian art.
Admission is free by appointment only. Book on-line. Parking is limited, call for information.
