Robert Beck | Robert Buck: States of America

May 10, 2016 - September 4, 2016

A solo exhibition presenting Robert Buck, an artist whose work has been collected in depth by the Pizzutis over the past twenty years. The drawings, sculpture, video and installation work reflect the artist’s sensitive investigations into how we respond to the diverse social and cultural challenges today. Like no one else, Buck offers a poetic and compassonate reflection on highly charged American experiences.

Patricia Dominguez: Eres un Princeso

June 11, 2016 - September 4, 2016

A large-scale installation focusing on Dominguez’ investigation of Spanish horses once owned by Colombian drug lords. Chilean artist Patricia Dominguez is fascinated by the meanings invested in these animals as powerful possessions and remnants of a colonial past.  Not only do the horses take on a quasi-mythical status thanks to their associations with a criminal culture, they are celebrated for their otherness as animals that differ due to their gait and style of presentation. The rich and compelling installation will be on the Third Floor.



September 18, 2015 - April 2, 2016

We are thrilled to present US IS THEM, a powerful exhibition of art by a group of international artists whose work reflects issues of current affairs and social justice from the US and around the globe. There exists a long history of artists as social critics from Goya to Manet and today’s artists are no different, as they confront politics, religion, and issues of race. Artists are in the unique position to create things of beauty that inspire reflection, elevate our consciousness and fuel a sense of responsibility.



July 1 2015 - August 29, 2015

A dynamic exhibition of twelve newly acquired works from the collection of Ron and Ann Pizzuti. These stunning paintings, sculpture, video, and photographs reflect the Pizzuti’s most recent interests as collectors and puts on view their passionate eye for new work by a fascinating mix of emerging and established artists from across the United States, Japan, Israel, and Sweden.


Tomory Dodge Exhibition

February 7, 2015 - June 20, 2015

TOMORY DODGE, a mini-exhibition within NOW-ISM: Abstraction Today, features joyous and exuberant paintings, collages, prints, and watercolors by the Los Angeles based artist Tomory Dodge.


Campana Brothers: Brazilian Design Now

February 7, 2015 - June 20, 2015

Columbus’s first glimpse of work by the Brazilian designers Fernando and Humberto Campana, a rare opportunity to see such a diverse assortment of fresh and fun design.  The exhibition celebrates their innovative, outlandish and smart furnishings, including chairs made out of fuzzy stuffed animals and a couch formed by leather alligator dolls. Sometimes utilizing traditional techniques like hand-weaving and often using unexpected or repurposed materials, the brothers turn everyday things into puzzlingly beautiful objects.


NOW-ISM: Abstraction Today

September 6, 2014 - August 15, 2015

A thought-provoking exhibition of twenty-first century painting, sculpture, video and furnishings representing the newest abstract work from today’s best artists. NOW-ISMfeatures international emerging stars like Sarah Cain, Diana Al-Hadid and Florian Meisenberg and established artists including Columbus’ own art star Ann Hamilton, Jim Hodges, Teresita Fernández, Jason Middlebrook, Carrie Moyer and Pia Fries. 


Ori Gersht: Portraits

September 6, 2014 - January 10, 2015

A film series by the highly acclaimed Israeli-born, London-based artist.  Ron and Ann Pizzuti have collected Ori Gersht’s work in depth over the last decade, but this focused show concentrates attention on only three films (each nearly 15 minutes in length), giving time to explore the stories and reflect on the history that inspired them.


Inaugural Exhibition

September 7, 2013 – June 21, 2014

In the Inaugural Exhibition, we take a look back, connecting the threads of experiences, artists and galleries, forming Ron Pizzuti as a collector.


Cuban Forever

September 7, 2013 – June 21, 2014

Cuban Forever features the diverse, rich, beautiful and compelling contemporary art of Cuba. Ron Pizzuti is fortunate to have had the opportunity to travel to Havana, where he met with artists in their studios, visited the museums and experienced the Cuban art world. Like most, he is taken with the natural beauty of the island and the historic charm of the city.



August 2011 - August 2012

In Fall 2011, a year before the Pizzuti Collection would open in its new permanent home in the renovated historic building in Columbus, Ohio, a small preview exhibition was presented to introduce the Pizzuti Collection to the public.
