Artist Statement/Bio
Julia Handschuh is an artist and organizer who makes objects, site specific installations and performance. She grew up studying improvisational movement and went on to be confused and intrigued by the world of conceptual art. She draws dismantling buildings, lives in a cabin off the grid, plays in porcelain and paper and travels by bike and hitch. She's trying to learn to articulate how each of these things are improvisational and site-specific in their own right.

She homeschooled for a time, then attended Greenfield Community College, and was award a the Jack Kent Cooke Scholarship which allowed her to afford the Museum School and Tufts University. The same foundation that gave her the first scholarship is now funding her to receive a Masters in Performance Studies at NYU.

Julia is creator of Valley Art Share, and former Co -Director of Commonwealth Center for Change. She also works as a freelance designer, art organizer, consultant, web marketer, grant writer, hair cutter & cook .

Awesome. I'd love to contribute to the zine, and yes, it sounds like you are the Julia I met on the streets :)

Let me know how I can participate, and good to connect (as someone new to the valley).

Hi Julia, 
Thanks for your positive response to the parade. I had hoped the C3 artist group might organize an artists contingent. 
Update: I've got the pedal people on board and we are considering how people can relate to the theme. So there might be an important development soon. What do you think of "Funeral for Fossil Fuels". Everyone can dress in black and create acts such as "Death of the Combustion Engine" and "The End of Coal" using pall bearers and sculptural effigies?

Thanks! Do you think I could find it, the tree, at 14 Union St.? Do you have a photo of the tree you could share?
