GAP Award 2003
Learn About GAP Award
Karen Liebowitz received a 2003 GAP to professionally document six completed murals and promote herself as a muralist through new slides and a website. “My interest in mural work began when the content of my own work had grown, and the paintings needed to exist on a large scale to support the archetypal nature of the scenes depicted. I am attempting to merge this form of public art with the content of my paintings without compromising either.” Having recently researched fresco techniques at Skowhegan School of Painting, Liebowitz plans on becoming more involved with public works, in part because of “the satisfaction of creating art that has a specific purpose and place.”
