Art from the Collection of Dario and Madeline Covi
The Hite Institute of Art and Design is honored to announce our upcoming exhibition Art From the Collection of Dario and Madeline Covi, on view in the Schneider Hall Galleries from September 30-November 5, 2022. This exhibition honors the legacy of Dr. Dario Covi whose leadership and dedication to the Hite Institute of Art and Design, and College of Arts and Sciences has had a profound impact on the College's faculty, staff, and students. Featuring nearly 50 artworks from the Covis' personal collection, the exhibition will showcase the artwork of many of Dr. Covi’s former students and colleagues as well as personal drawings and paintings created by Dr. Covi himself.
The breadth of work presented is a testament to the Covis' commitment to and love of the arts—several of the pieces by former students and colleagues contain personal dedications and notes to the Covis', for example -- but also serves as a fascinating representation of the artists who pushed, challenged, and developed Louisville’s art scene over the last 50 years.
Additionally, the Hite is pleased to share that many of the works on view will become part of the University’s Art Collection thanks to a generous gift from the Covis. Other works from their collection will be available in an online auction later this year. Proceeds from the auction will be used for the conservation of works in the University's collection.
On Saturday Oct. 22, a closing reception will be held in the Schneider Hall Galleries from 1-4 PM. Refreshments will be served. This event is free and open to the public.
