6-16-2013: This past weekend I attended the Public Art Network and Americans for the Arts 2013 Annual Convention in Pittsburg, PA. At the conference bookstore was the first release of “Franz Mayer of Munich: Architecture, Glass, Art”, a comprehensive book on the world’s foremost studio for mosaics and stained glass. Attached is a page-spread of my glass murals “Trace Elements” produced at Franz Mayer of Munich and installed at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport.
“Franz Mayer of Munich: Architecture, Glass, Art” Founded in 1847, Mayer of Munich is one of the world’s foremost studios for mosaics and stained glass. Dedicated to mostly the execution of contemporary projects for artists and architects worldwide, the book takes readers on a tour of the company’s long history, from its genesis as an ecclesiastical sculpture studio to the establishment of a stained glass department in 1860, mosaics in 1925, and documenting contemporary projects’ worldwide. I am pleased to have worked at Franz Mayer of Munich producing two large-scale signature public art projects for Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport. 6-16-2013
