Ron Ferri is a master at making the ordinary extraordinary. Both creatively and conceptually ahead of his time, his visual take on the everyday is what truly sets him apart. Beginning in the late 1960s Ferri began working with materials like neon and plexiglass to create unique works of art and design as well as large scale installations. The chic simplicity of his work found an eager audience throughout the 1970s and 80s. His work has been championed and collected by an illustrious clientele including Ian Schrager, Carly Simon, Eileen & Jerry Ford, and Jack Nicholson.
Ferri’s work is in the collections of the Museum of Modern Art (MOMA, New York), the Smithsonian American Museum (Washington, DC), the Art Institute of Chicago, the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the Whitney Museum of American Art, the National Gallery of Art (Washington, DC), the Muse’e d’ Art Moderne (Saint-Etienne, France).
