ABOUT THE JUROR

Liz Publika is the Founder and Editor-in-Chief of ARTpublika Magazine, an online publication that covers the pragmatic side of art. Her goal is to show people how art influences their daily lives by picking one subject per quarter and examining it through an artistic lens. As a public speaker and guest lecturer at numerous art conferences, organizations, and events, she uses her platform to encourage people to use art as a tool for expanding their understanding of the creative side of humanity, and how that creativity is used to shape the world in which they live.

As an artist, Liz Publika exhibits in solo and group shows around the New York City area and for four consecutive years at Art Basel in Miami, Florida. Currently, she is preparing to launch a number of exciting projects, which will be coming to fruition in the next three years.
