Marcia Billig

Art has always been a major pursuit for me.  I try to express a sense of joy and movement in my figurative works.

I have been creating public and private sculptures for many years.  All of my commissions, both public and private have involved the input of the people who would be enjoying the space or the facility.  In each case, whether it was a library, school court yard, public park, subway station, or an arts center, I first met with a committee representing the local arts community, the business representatives directly involved with the project, and friends from the “neighborhood.”

I received a Master of Fine Arts Degree in Sculpture from American University, a Master in Education with a major in art from George Washington University, and a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Education from Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia.

Five of my sculptures installed in the Washington area are pictured and described in the revised 2008 edition, “Washington Sculpture, A Cultural History of Outdoor Sculpture in the Nation’s Capital.” by James Goode, historian, and former staff member of the Smithsonian Institution.  My sculptures included are:

“BALANCE,”  “GRANDDAUGHTERS,”  “LIFT OFF,’’

“THE JUGGLER,’’ and “THE COMMUTER.’’
