The Venice Series
Cynthia Vandeveer 2014

The Venice Series is formally based on a photograph of the pilings in the Venice lagoon. These pilings are also what form the foundation for the entire city.

Venice, once referred to as La Serenissima, the serene city, and ritually married to the sea, (Sposalizio del Mare), is quickly becoming a symbol for the rising waters of climate change. Acqua Alta, (flooding) occurs more than 50 times annually since 1980.

Sales of this work benefit Our Children's Trust and Preserve our Winters, both groups are lobbying for climate change issues.
