Public Art Around The World - Tanya Izzard

Welcome to Public Art Around The World. I started my career in film and television a long, long time ago and spent many years filming around the world. In my travels I spent a lot of time taking photos of weird statues and sculptures. My fascination continued when I switched from traditional media to new media. So, what better way to feed my obsession than to build a website about it. For years I had collected info and tidbits about public art (mostly the quirky and weird stuff) but I discovered a lot of people didn't know much about statues and sculptures (let alone care). The problem, I believe, is there simply isn't enough juicy bits to get them excited about it. So, I have endeavoured to hunt, pull and drag as much scandal, gossip, weird facts as I can (without offending or getting sued) on every little piece of public art I can. I have also set up a blog so YOU too can contribute to the good, bad and the ugly of public art around the world. Click here Public Art Around The World Blog.

But wait there is more... This is just one website in a series of GlobeVista websites. We are only a small team, three infact, with experience in both media and IT. Our company GlobeVista was established in 2000, and since then we have spent an awful lot of time building websites. The GlobeVista team includes myself, Aidan Montague and Simon Akkerman.
