Giorgio Vasari was a person of many crafts in the 16th century Renaissance era. He was the first Italian art historian of his time. Vasari's most famously known work is his book, Lives of the Most Excellent Painters, Sculptors, and Architects. His book is the most influential piece written about art in the High Renaissance. We honor his name in our organization for the reason that we believe ourselves as critics in our era for our modern-day art, technology while remaining a student for a lifetime learning how to progress for future days to come.
