Ron and Ann Pizzuti have spent the past 40 years amassing over 2,000 piece of contemporary artwork. In September 2015, the couple decided to share their considerable collection with the public by transforming a 90-year old building in the Short North Arts District of Columbus, Ohio, into a public gallery, complete with a sculpture garden and resource library. Through their nonprofit, the Pizzuti Collection, the couple aims to “foster cultural understanding and educational exchange by championing a diversity of voices from around the globe,” according to its website. In this regard the Pizzuti Collection is mostly composed of contemporary artists whose work “transcends, elevates the mind and expresses freedoms.”
