May 2nd at 4:00, Opening Reception for Ioan Popoiu's "As The Footsteps Fall," Tata Innovation Center/Cornell Tech

Solo exhibits featuring RIVAA artist Ioan Popoiu are always special events, and As The Footsteps Fall, opening with a free public reception on Thursday, May 2nd, at the Tata Innovation Center on the Cornell Tech Campus, will be no exception. You're invited. Visitors are welcomed, starting at 4:00.

I can't claim objectivity. A pair of works by Ioan Popoiu grace the walls in my apartment. Both were gifts from the artist, a Romanian-American political refugee who landed here with his family in 1984 after forcing the issue with a 45 day hunger strike.

He paid a price, but although he fought to leave his homeland for freedom in America, he carried his artistic sensibilities with him.
