PD PRESENTS: BROOKLYN ARTIST LIZA LACROIX FOR POPPS PACKING SUMMER RESIDENCY PROGRAM
PLAYGROUND DETROIT is excited to announce our partnership with Popps Packing to host our 2015 Summer artist in residence, Brooklyn- based painter Liza Lacroix.
She began formal training in her teens before attending the Ontario College of Art and Design. While completing her BFA at OCAD, she participated in their Satellite Program in Florence, Italy.
During her residency, Lacroix will continue her evolution as an abstract painter, further exploring her materials and color palette by transforming existing paintings into collage elements for new paintings. These new works will be presented in a solo exhibition at Popps Packing on Saturday, June 27, 2015.
Popps Packing is an experimental arts venue aimed at promoting dialog and cultural exchange between the local, national and international communities through exhibitions, performances, workshops and artist residencies.
They offer a place to work creatively in a way that is informed by and responds to the local surroundings, stimulating innovative exploration while providing a platform for local residents and visitors to engage with the art community and each other. The artistic production and social interaction facilitated at Popps Packing presents multiple points of access into modes of expression and neighborhood dynamics. The goal is to inject positive activity into our neighborhood and foster cultural exchange through creative endeavors.
