Nusia – Robin Levy

“Nusia” – A memory can transport a person to a particular place and time. My intention was to activate a childhood memory that remains crystal clear and cherished by my mother: ”strolling with Tata (father) down the wide avenue on Sundays getting balloons and ice cream”.  During the 2012 opening of “Memory Project” Anne Skorecki Levy handed out balloons printed with her photograph taken at the age of four in Łódź, Poland. Mom had the opportunity to reclaim and share with others one of her last innocent pre-WWII recollections, seventy-three years later- connecting past and present.

Robin Levy – born and raised in New Orleans. After high school, Levy spent a year in the Middle East. She received her BFA from Louisiana State University in 1982, attended the Instituto Per L’Arte e iI Restauro in Florence, Italy in 1986 and earned an MFA from Rhode Island School of Design in 1990. She has had solo exhibitions and has participated in a wide range of juried and invitational group shows. Her work is included in museum collections, foundations, and private collections throughout the United States and abroad.
