The Norfolk Arts mentorship committee selected local artist Betsy DiJulio as an artist mentor to work with DeeDee Morrison of Greenville, SC in 2019/20 to complete a public art project for the Elizabeth River Trail at the Larchmont Library.
Betsy will learn how to create a professional public art proposal and work with committees and the public to bring the art to fruition. The apprentice artist is paid $1,000 for up to one year of mentoring and will communicate monthly with Morrison, complete at least one joint presentation to the community and perform various other duties that arise during the course of the year. It is the hope of Norfolk Arts to continue offering mentorship opportunities with national public art professionals contracted with the City of Norfolk.
As an art reviewer for VEER Magazine and a high school art and art history teacher based in Va. Beach, Betsy writes and teaches about public art. “To be more intimately involved in such a project over a protracted period of time by serving as a mentee to Deedee Morrison, will deepen and broaden my understanding of and knowledge about the ins and outs – and twists and turns – of public art.” Betsy DiJulio
