$5,000 toward the conservation of the abstract plaster work by the sculptor, organized by Diana Agostini. With only a year of training at the Leonardo Da Vinci School in Manhattan, Agostini was virtually self-taught and explored the continuum between figuration and abstraction. He created volumous plaster casts of inflated inner tubes as well as abstracted interpretations from such everyday objects as newspapers, balloons and pillows.
