Photographer Dylan Vitone is Emerging Artist of the Year

By Mary Thomas, Pittsburgh Post-Gazettez,

The Pittsburgh Center for the Arts 2009 Emerging Artist of the Year, an award instituted in 2001, is photographer Dylan Vitone. He presents "The Miami Project" beginning Friday.

Vitone morphs documentary and fine art approaches to his subject in panoramas that display cultural practices within localized environments.

" 'The Miami Project' explores the heightened sexuality and spectacle that exist in parts of this storied city," Vitone writes in his artist's statement. "There is a rich tradition of feminine beauty competitions, as well as testosterone-charged bodybuilding flex-offs. ... 'The Miami Project' is about creating a record of this place."

An assistant professor in the School of Design at Carnegie Mellon University, Vitone earned a bachelor of arts from St. Edward's University and a master of fine arts from Massachusetts College of Art.

He has exhibited extensively, including a solo exhibition at Westmoreland Museum of American Art, Greensburg, and as the 2004 fellowship winner at Silver Eye Center for Photography, chosen for that honor by photography curator Tom Hinson of the Cleveland Museum of Art.

Vitone's work is represented in the permanent collections of the George Eastman House, Rochester, N.Y.; Polaroid Collection, Waltham, Mass.; National Museum of American History, Smithsonian Institution; Carnegie Museum of Art; Museum of Contemporary Photography, Chicago; and Museum of Fine Arts, Boston; among others
