Magdalena Abakanowicz @ San Giorgio Maggiore Island, Venice

Figurative sculptress Abakanowicz will be exhibiting 110 of her burlap figures,  simulating a crowd.  Abrakanowicz is an important Polish-Russian artist who was a young girl during the Second World War & the Russian Revolution, & spent 45 years under the oppression of Soviet rule.  Hopefully, we will be able to experience her work during our visit to the Basilica San Giorgio Maggiore, where I will be doing my class presentation.
