$20,000 toward the catalogue that will accompany the exhibition Ralph Fasanella’s America, organized by museum curator Paul S. D’Ambrosio. Fasanella discovered his interest in painting years after being politically active with the New York labor movements. Faithful to his ties with the unions, Fasanella created complex paintings that depict interior and exterior space simultaneously, reflecting both the concerns and the environments of the working class.
