|Alumnus, Xiomaro's art featured in NYC Museum and Harvard|
Richard P. Dieguez `82, known as Xiomaro, is a fine art photographer, frequently commissioned by the National Parks Service. In January, Harvard University will present a year-long exhibit of his photographs of Sagamore Hill, which was the home of President Theodore Roosevelt. Harvard is also inviting filmmaker Ken Burns to be involved as he will be releasing a new PBS documentary about both TR and FDR. To view more information, visit The New York Times article and in this video. You can see the photographs at www.xiomaro.com/TR
Currently, Xio has an exhibit at New York City's Fraunces Tavern Museum in New York City, which is being extended into 2014. The photographs center on the Long Island home of William Floyd, a Founding Father who signed the Declaration of Independence and served with George Washington, Thomas Jefferson and James Madison. You can see the photos by downloading a free 60 page eBook at his website's home page: www.xiomaro.com
The William Floyd collection includes a series that memorializes the forgotten slaves buried at Floyd's plantation. These photographs will be exhibited at the African Burial Ground National Monument in New York City starting in February 2014 (Black History month). The photographs will make their debut at the African American Museum next month through January 2014.
Xio is very grateful to Sr. Eleanor Carr `44, who was his advisor and introduced him to art through her preceptorial: Learning To Look.
