TRANSFORMING HISTORY AND COMMUNITY INTO ART

Life-Long Brooklyn resident KT Merz is one of New York's most renowned contemporary artists. Translating the history, personality, and culture surrounding each of her installments, Katie's murals capture the richness and diversity of both the people and places she works within.

 

KATIE'S PLAYFUL STYLE OF VISUAL STORYTELLING HAS BEEN IN HIGH DEMAND TO PAT HOMAGE TO NUMEROUA, TRANSFORMING COMMUNITIES. HERE'S WHAT SHE'S BEEN UP TO RECENTLY:

 

NEW META HQ, HUDSON YARDS IN NYC

To capture the immersive nature of the metaverse, Katie created a mural that wraps around the front and sidewall as well as the floor.

"Some of these themes are funny. There are a lot of characters staring at their iPhones or into their computer. This is itself somewhat meta because I am assuming that everyone in that office will be too immersed in their laptops or iPhones to even find myopically techie characters inside the wall."

URSINUS COLLEGE IN COLLEGEVILLE, PA

This 90ft high smokestack became an educational project in conjunction with the Berman Art Museum and a permanent celebration of Ursinus' graduating class of 2021.

The project's theme, 'Live the Questions,' reflects the students' exploration and conversations with Katie on the impacts of the global pandemic, racial injustice, and other life-defining moments. Its impact has since earned Katie an honorary Doctorate of Humane Letters from the institution and an invitation to deliver their May 2022 commencement speech.

PS 11 ELEMENTARY SCHOOL IN BROOKLYN, NY

"A teacher at PS 11 contacted me via Instagram. She was humble and kind and said that the kids had loved my mural on Flatbush Ave, so she reached out on a whim. She had her students break down symbols from their classes relating to architecture and engineering and science, which led to the 150 hieroglyphs I used on the doors."

THE JOINERY CHARLOTTE NC

This cutting-edge residential development in Charlotte's art & culture district, NoDa, requested Katie's help translating the area's rich culture to their new build

"In addition to my own notes and observations, I asked a neighbor who has lived in this area for forty years about the geography and the history - their stories and information gave me insight into the past, present, and future of this community."
