‘Manhole’ artist at reception, lecture

The lecture is in conjunction with “Manhole Cover Monoprints” on exhibit in the cultural center’s gallery. Brancaccio uses manhole covers as a printing plate to create colorful imagery that often goes beyond the representation of the manhole cover.

The exhibition consists of various sized manhole monoprints from many places around the world, such as Paris, New York, Chicago, Taiwan, London and Hamburg, Germany.

“Manhole Cover Monoprints” runs through June 21. The cultural center’s regular hours are 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Tuesdays through Fridays and from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays.
