Artist Joseph Cavalieri will greet visitors in the gallery for a discussion of his recent work included in NYC Makers: The MAD Biennial. Following this in-gallery dialog, museum visitors are welcome to join Cavalieri in the Artist Studios on the sixth floor. Cavalieri's unique glass art techniques combine modern cultural elements with time-honored processes used by Medieval stained glass artists.

He also was part of a two-person exhibit at TS Art Projects (Berlin).
