New Commission for The Print Center
The Print Center in Philadelphia commissioned Julia to create a photographic mural as part of their Centennial: The Print Center 100. Hoping to reflect the city from above, she chose a view of center city from the roof of a high-rise, The Philadelphia Building. The adhesive-backed vinyl is appears in a doorway, facing Latimer street.

OPEN HOUSE FOR POSTGREEN HOMES
customizable, energy efficient, well designed & affordable homes.
On the Postgreen Homes Blog, the president, Chad Ludeman, introduces “Artistic Accent Wall Options.”
“We all love accent walls and while it’s easy to paint one or even put up some pallet wood on one, we wanted to do something a bit more unique (not that we probably won’t offer those options soon also). We’re happy to announce our first artist – Julia Blaukopf – to take part in this new program with us. Julia is more talented than we probably deserve to work with, which is why we’re pretty psyched about the potential of her work in our homes. She has a varied background that includes all types of photography, a book, jewelry and most recently architectural wallpaper created from her photography works.”
Philly Living’s Sandy Smith covered the event, writing:
“Up against the walls of the living room and kitchen of one model unit were samples and projections of the work of Philly photographer Julia Blaukopf, whose photographs and collages span a broad spectrum that includes history, social commentary and celebrations of the natural and man-made environment.”
Photographic Artwork in Healthcare
Michael’s presentation focuses on art in Senior Citizen homes in Germany. His research begins with quoting Article 27 (1) of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, which states that everyone has the right freely to participate in the cultural life of the community, to enjoy the arts and to share in scientific advancement and its benefits.
Michael’s research centers on how seniors who are physically and often mentally challenged experience the arts, as well as how art is included. He visited six elderly live-in homes in Munich, analyzing how each venue uses artwork. He then offered suggestions as to how artwork can be included to improve the interior environments.
Michael found that one particular problem exists at secure Elder Care facilities for those with dementia. Due to the resident’s mental limitations – first loosing their short term memory, later their long term memory – they often forget what their hospital bed looks like. In such cases, the staff guides them to this “normal” bed, which looks more like their previous, personal bed. The room you see sometimes functions as a bedroom, but it does not feel warm and welcoming to those in need. Thus, to improve the aesthetics of the room, Michael has created these two concepts that show how Julia’s artwork can completely change the environment.

Julia Blaukopf recently made custom photo-tiles for Natalie Weathers Nixon, depicting her home and the beautiful backyard treescape. Natalie commissioned Julia to first photograph around her home. Five images were subsequently selected as accent subway tiles in her newly renovated kitchen.
