Red Thought Cluster
Born and raised in Reading, Pennsylvania, Julia Cocuzza is a Brooklyn-based painter, muralist, designer, print maker, and educator. She is most interested in the intersection of public art and education, leading projects with organizations such as Groundswell, NYC Mural Arts Project, and (of course) Sing For Hope. Her paintings capture the loaded intersections, layers, and fragments of daily living, with a particular affection for urban structures and systems, human interaction, music, and obsolete media. She received a BFA from Syracuse University and MFA from Brooklyn College, as well as artist residencies from Prairie Center for the Arts and Wassaic Art Project.
