Community Artist and Instructor Reflects on Career, Art

Pasquale Joseph (Joe) DeCicco, an English adjunct at NVCC since 1989, is known for his relief carvings that grace many of the College’s walls. Prior to NVCC, DeCicco taught at Waterbury’s Crosby High School for 25 years. Aside from his love of education, DeCicco enjoys creating art for colleagues and the community. “I’m inspired by the idea of beauty,” he said. Last year, the Vatican accepted Joe’s gift of a relief carving depicting the face on the Shroud of Turin and sent Joe a “Thank You” from Pope Francis’ secretary. He also has carvings that were accepted by the past and present White House administrations.  A wood bas relief with acrylics of Abraham Lincoln created by DeCicco is included in the Spring 2018 NVCC Faculty Art show which is currently on display in the Community Room in Founders Hall.
