About this event

Lady of the Lights: The Figurative Art of Maria Cusumano

Now–September 17, 2021

Endicott College - Spencer Presentation Gallery

This exhibit focuses on a ten-year period, between 1985 and 1995, of Maria Cusumano’s artmaking when the human form became a central subject of her art. The large pastels on view were allegories expressing the artist’s philosophies, politics, and psyche; in these works, Maria used herself as the primary figure model for her pastels, paintings, and drawings. The Goddess Graphics prints were created as expressions synthesizing her interests in spirituality and feminism.

Maria passed during 2019, yet her artwork, particularly her figurative works, contains the passion, politics, sensualism, theologies, and innocent purity she pursued and lived for decades. Over the decades of her teaching career, thousands of students were encouraged to pursue their creative aspirations while exploring their personal and collective unconscious.

All indoor events that are open to the public require attendees to wear a mask—regardless of vaccination status. The mask mandate extends to all attendees—including students, faculty, staff, and guests.

Events that fall into this category include indoor concerts, performances, and gallery shows. Vaccinated performers may be exempt from wearing masks.

While our high vaccination rate positions the Endicott community well over the threshold for herd immunity, we acknowledge there are situations where our population will be interacting with large numbers of the general public on our campus.
