firm secures o-1 approval for expert in renaissance and italian art

Managing Partner Michael Wildes is pleased to announce that Wildes & Weinberg has secured an O-1 approval for his client Dr. Nelda Damiano. Dr. Damiano has been widely hailed, by industry experts and peers alike, as one of the few to have reached the top of the field in the area of Renaissance Art and Art History in Canada. The prolific content of the work undertaken by Dr. Damiano places her in a category well above others in this field, which is evidenced by her employment in critical and essential capacities by organizations and establishments with a distinguished reputation, her original scholarly contributions of major significance in the field and authorship of scholarly publications in the field.

For over 10 years, Dr. Damiano has garnered international recognition as a leading expert in Renaissance and Italian Art. The exhibitions for which she has played curatorial roles have reached every level of mass media. She had been credited in books, newspapers, magazines, TV and radio. Recently, Dr. Damiano was employed in the capacity of Senior Exhibitions Manager with the internationally recognized National Gallery of Canada, one of the world’s most respected art institutions. Dr. Damiano carried out historical and bibliographical research for exhibitions such as From Raphael to Carracci: The Art of Papal Rome and Caravaggio and his Followers in Rome. On almost a daily basis the newspapers and magazines were flooded with news about the exhibition From Raphael to Carracci: The Art of Papal Rome. News of this exhibition reached a national audience by newspapers, magazines, website and radio and received an astounding approval rating.

Dr. Damiano will now hold the prestigious post of Associate Curator at the Cummer Museum of Art, a cultural and educational institution which holds one of the finest art collections in the Southeast and world-class art spanning from 2100 B.C. through the 21st century.

It is a privilege to have worked with such an extraordinary individual.
