About the Event

This talk is in the tradition of the Salmagundi Club which began in 1878 the first Black and White, grisaille exhibitions continuously exhibited even today. It may be the oldest monochromatic exhibition in the United States. Join fine artist Michael Grimaldi as he discusses the literary, cinematic, and historical works including print and lithographic influences that have inspired his recent multimedia grisailles (monochromes).
