In 2005, Rocco and Gloria founded Ann Arbor’s Gallery Project, a fine art collaborative whose mission is to be a venue for contemporary art that is culturally aware, individualistic, courageous, and thought provoking. As Gallery Project’s directors and curators, their exhibitions included The God Show, Nature Reperceived, Animal Intelligence, Imaging the Future, Mine/Yours, Umwelt (Subjective World), Nature as Spirit, Grammar of the Elite, and Interspecies Communication. In 2013, Galley Project entered a new phase, presenting large annual exhibitions on culturally relevant themes at selected locations. Their current project is Drones, a dual-site exhibit opening in Detroit’s Eastern Market on October 11 and at the Ann Arbor Art Center on January 3, 2014.
