The Fitchburg Art Museum and Fitchburg State University are currently collaborating on a work of public art for the University’s Amelia V. Galluci-Cirio Library.
Connecticut artist KK Kozik has been commissioned to create a mural inside the Library’s central four-story stairwell. This mural features painted images of books, playfully cascading down through the space, surrounding visitors and library patrons as they walk up and down the staircase. The mural is aptly titled Flights of Imagination: Juliet, Kate, and Ophelia. The artist will complete the mural by the end of June, and the Library will host a formal public art dedication event on Thursday, September 27 at 3:30pm.
KK Kozik is an artist and educator who paints in a contemporary representational style, creating images of landscapes, domestic interiors, and poetic and enigmatic narratives. Over the past few years, she has worked on a series of book paintings, in which the books are subtlely imbued with personalities, attitudes, and agendas.
