   Washington Post Review of "Megaphone" by Mark Jenkins    "Among the most engaging works are those of Salvatore Pirrone and Neil Feather, both sculptors of sound as well as objects. Pirrone’s six-foot wooden “Megaphone,” installed on the center’s grounds, is visually striking; it also projects voices from one end and can be entered from the other. Feather’s noisemakers combine various sizes of spheres, from marble to bowling balls, with repurposed magnets, cymbals, record players and electronic pickups. As fun to watch as to activate, the devices constitute a semiautomatic percussion orchestra. As a bonus, the artist’s “Erroneous Astrophysics” presents a playful lesson in planetary motion."

   Northern Virginia Magazine "Megaphone" Review by Eliza Berkon    "One of the most whimsical pieces in the show, Salvatore Pirrone’s monumental wooden  Megaphone  spans the AAC lawn, with its large end open for observers who’d like to crawl in." 
   Washington Post Review: Arlington Arts Center "Spring Solos" 2014 Review by   Michael O'Sullivan    "Salvatore Pirrone’s aim is somewhat different. For his solo, the sculptor has cast multiples of everyday objects — dozens of cellphones, light bulbs, pencils and tennis balls — in pastel-colored concrete and plaster. Unlike Adams’s work, these are not realistic; they resemble oversize Pez candies as much as the objects they represent. Like Adams, though, Pirrone highlights his own artifice. His sculptures, although familiar in form, appear strange, even unnerving."
