Two of the three panels have yet to be restored and Vareika is working with Boston College to raise the funds needed to do so. Upon their completion, they will be permanently installed in the McMullen Museum of Art. Their showing at BIFAS will be the first opportunity since the 1920’s that the Boston public has had to see these masterworks.
“Naturally I hope our guests experience a sense of awe evoked by the striking nature of La Farge’s work,” comments Fusco. “Yet, more than that, I think this piece in its current state tells a powerful story of conservation. I’ve always viewed the buying and selling of art as a process of pieces finding their proper home. I think Bill has done that for La Farge. I’m delighted that BIFAS offers all of our galleries the opportunity to do the same for the artists they represent.”
Fusco & Four produces two other successful shows each year at The Cyclorama: AD20/21: Art & Design of the 20th and 21st Centuries, which will hold its seventh annual show March 27-20, 2014 (www.AD2021.com) and the companies re-launch of The Ellis Boston Antiques Show, scheduled for the Fall of 2014 (www.ellisboston.com).
