Piazzolla Art by Alejandro Ferrante

Phillips Collection - are you watching?

We have an interesting video today of artist Alejandro Juan Ferrante creating an original piece of art with an enjoyable version of Otoño Porteño playing in the background.

Ferrante shares Piazzolla's birthplace, Mar del Plata, and although currently a resident of Milano, he keeps his tango roots alive by working as a tango teacher and performer in addition to his role as an artist (and architect). You will find other YouTube videos of Ferrante at work as an artist and as a dancer although for obvious reasons, this video is my favorite.

I think the finished product would be a fine addition to The Phillips Collection in Washington, D.C. Nanci, will you please find an appropriate donor and make the arrangements?
