Thanks to Robin Murez and Venice Public Art for hosting this free walking tour! About Venice Public Art: THE VENICE PUBLIC ART FORUM brings together creative and active individuals and businesses to beautify and build community ties through public art and green space projects throughout Venice. Through our projects, neighbors become friends and our streets gain new green space parks with the variety of artistic, intellectual, playful and unique elements that have been the reputation of Venice from its inception. About the artist: Robin Murez is a public artist and instructor based in Los Angeles, California. Her sculptural installations throughout the US have won numerous awards, critical acclaim and are loved by their communities. From transforming blighted street corners to creating surprising, contemplative and beautiful public spaces, Murez’ work relates seamlessly, if not unexpectedly, to its community and site, as it inspires sensory experiences and provokes conceptual investigations. Both abstract and figurative, Murez’ work is often narrative: sculptural installations that set the stage and invite viewers to be transported into the story. Aesthetics and unexpected surprises draw viewers in, they then enjoy etherial sensations and explore conceptual beliefs. Murez works both two and three dimensionally, in a wide range of mediums including bronze, concrete, glass, stone, resin, mosaic, steel, light, paint, earth and digital media. The scale of her work is from architectural to intimate and often draws upon the cultural history of individuals and communities. For more info, visit http://www.robinmurez.com/section1/resume.htm .
