haggerty museum of art, gallery talk with giuseppe mazzone

  • Wednesday, October 28, Noon to 1:00 p.m.
  • Lobby of the Haggerty Museum of Art

The Haggerty is currently presenting Giuseppe Mazzone Geometry of Faith, an exhibition featuring the dissertation work of Giuseppe Mazzone, who recently received a Ph.D. in architecture from UWM’s School of Architecture and Urban Planning. Mazzone’s project is based on Sainte-Anne-la-Royale, a 17th century Parisian church that was only partially realized and later destroyed. Using three engravings left behind by the original architect, Guarino Guarini, Mazzone reconstructed the church by creating a set of drawings, both handmade and computer generated, and a 3D printed model. From the model, an immersive, 3D version of the building was made by Marquette’s Visualization Laboratory (MARVL), where Mazzone currently holds the position of Student-Centered Active Learning Educator (SCALE). The exhibition includes Mazzone’s drawings, the 3D model, and a film Mazzone created about the project.
