Romeo DiBattista Jr. serves as the president and CEO of The Recycling Depot (Maple) in Vaughan, Ontario. Outside of work, Rome DiBattista Jr. remains actively involved in the community with his support of organizations like the Art Gallery of Ontario.

From April to July, 2017, the museum will host an exhibition about the trailblazing American artist Georgia O’Keeffe. The exhibition will feature more than 80 works of art, including landscapes and works inspired by architecture and nature. Visitors will have the chance to see many of her most celebrated paintings and learn more about the reflections of the human form the artist saw in nature. The show at the Art Gallery of Ontario is the exhibition’s only North American stop.

In addition to work by O’Keeffe, the exhibition will feature photographs from Ansel Adams and Alfred Stieglitz that highlight their relationships with O’Keeffe and the impact that they had on her paintings. The exhibition also looks at her relationship with Paul Strand, another renowned photographer.

Because of the nature of the show, individuals are only admitted with timed tickets. The exhibition was organized by Tate Modern with backing from the Art Gallery of Ontario and Bank Austria Kunstforum in Vienna.
