It connects the districts of San Polo and San Marco. Built in 1591, it consists of two rows of shops and three footpaths. The shops only face the middle way, and sell fruits, vegetables and all kinds of tourist stuff. The Rialto Bridge is located about 500 meters north of Saint Mark's Square. He used sewing needles and magnifying glasses to get a fine level of detail. A member of many printmaking societies, Arms served as president of the American Society of Graphic Artists. An educator, Arms wrote the Handbook of Print Making and Print Makers (1934) and did numerous demonstrations and lectures. Arms was elected into the National Academy of Design as an Associate member in 1930, and became a full member in 1933.
