Public Art

Art in the public arena is a realm where thousands can appreciate art daily, reinforcing a sense of ownership and pride in the community. We accomplish this by including pictorial murals that are able to tell the story of a place and add visual stimulus or narrative to a structure. I approach every individual installation by considering the unique characteristics of the space and seek to accentuate the existing circumstances with my site-specific artwork. This public vernacular lends a more human scale to a site; colors, details and textural rhythms give the eye an image to explore, to identify with through a tactile exploration. Aliberti Art Tile has combined ornament with functional objects to transform a vacant courtyard at an existing neo-gothic building into a pleasant gathering place that is stylistically appropriate to the surrounding building. two large terra cotta planters, a fountain, two tile tables, six hanging pots and a garden provide the occupants of the building with an inspiring outdoor environment. It helps to draw them into the courtyard and has the potential to improving a citizen's likelihood of identifying with the site.

Aliberti Art Tile ceramic work is particularly well suited to the public environment. For the sake of the patron's investment, I value durability and permanence for my work. The pigments and clay-body are made of ecologically benign minerals. Our ceramics are fired to vitrification, strengthening it to withstand severe weather and public usage. It will not spall due to freezing temperatures. It incurs no degradation in color or form and the art remains vibrant indefinitely. There is very little need for any maintenance over the course of the materials tremendously long life span. Ceramics are among the most durable materials known to humanity.
