The work of Avi Katz is on display in the City Hall atrium throuhgout the month of June. Avi was born and raised in Israel and is a graduate of the School of Visual Arts in New York. As a newcomer to Bloomington, Avi said he was compelled to do illustrations of local scenes in a uniquely visualized documentation from a non-conventional angle. His art is greatly influenced by French graphic novels and animation and the combination of the European style and local landmarks results in fresh observations of familiar places. Avi did the artwork for the Scott Russell Sanders fiction stories in the June/July 2012 issue of Bloom Magazine. This is his fourth exhibition.
The exhibit will be on display June 1-30. Exhibition hours are 8 am to 5 pm, Monday through Friday, as well as additional evening and weekend hours when City Hall is open for meetings.
