The beautiful little town of Bitteto, just outside of Bari in Puglia, Italy will host an exhibit of world famous American sculptor Greg Wyatt. Mr. Wyatt is most noted for his cast bronze figures in the style of Spiritual Realism. Just some of the places where his sculptures appear include New York City (Cathedral Church of St. John the Divine, Columbia University, Gramercy Park), Washington, D.C. (US Department of State, US House of Representatives, Georgetown University), Paris, France and the UK. In Italy, his work has appeared in Florence at the Giardino Bardini, Teatro del Maggio Musicale Fiorentino and Casa di Dante and in Sicily, at the Museo Archeologico Regionale di Agrigento.
The current exhibit in Bitetto, called "Alle Origini", is being held at the Convento Domenicani and the Santuario del Beato Giocamo from April 26 - May 24, 2009. This event is presented by the town of Bitteto and the American Friends of Bitteto Foundation. Bitetto and the Foundation are working together on a series of initiatives showcasing historical and artistic endeavors.
