Giovanna Diaz – Illuminate

“This lightbulb was created for Simply Destinee as my first venture into public sculpture and participating in the conversation around social issues. The design is a painted lightbulb which is meant to represent the fractures we may cause in others. Although these fractures may often cause a lightbulb to break, my sculpture represents the various ways in which we could instead help others breakthrough struggles and shine together. Currently, I live in Aurora and work for the Aurora Public Library’s Digital Services. I enjoy traveling, reading and coffee. My art practice continues to focus on ceramics, sculpture and 3D printing. My digital portfolio may be found at”

Giovanna’s bulb was moved to Waldo Middle School.
