Event Details

Join our Summer Artist-In-Residence, Julia O. Bianco every Saturday from 12-4pm right here at the CAC in the Creativity Center studio for a free, drop in program to make art alongside Julia!

Julia's residency is titled Jardín Universo.

What is - and what is possible in - a garden? Artist and ecologist Julia Orquera Bianco invites us to reflect on themes of wildness, growth, resilience, community, and hope. Imagining gardens as small universes that can take physical and ethereal forms, this artist encourages us to find nourishment and meaning through poetry, song, and artmaking.

Who is Julia?

Julia Orquera Bianco was born in Argentina and lived in Mexico before moving to the United States. She earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Universidad del Museo Social Argentino (Buenos Aires, Argentina) in 2012. In 2018 she graduated from the MFA program at Roski School of Art and Design, University of Southern California, Los Angeles. In 2020, Bianco earned a Certificate on Sustainability from University of California, Los Angeles. In 2023 she completed a Permaculture Design Certificate at Cincinnati Permaculture Institute.

Bianco works through interrogating constructs from Modern Western Culture, collective memory, and the experience of migration, through the lens of a guest on the Land she inhabits. Her work reflects on the changing nature of identity and belonging and their entanglement with the past, the present, and the place. She uses her family legacy of labor, craft, music, and storytelling as strategies to build knowledge and understanding of self, others, and place, experiencing while remembering. Her work has been showcased and published in Argentina, Canada, Mexico, New Zealand, and the United States.
