Liuzzo is an artist, art educator, and owner of Shelf Life Art and Supply Co., a Greensboro-based new and used art supply store that started in 2014 and already has a wealth of things, Cassandra grew up around her old Boy Scout motto, “Use Your Resources Wisely ”. Many of Liuzzo’s processes are based on inventing uses for ancient and found materials, often using remnants of previous projects, studies and personal memorabilia, and attracting the use of natural materials such as cotton, watercolor and metal sheets. Cassandra is also available for private art classes and art assignments, and has worked with clients ranging from individuals to local businesses.
GROW is a flexible creative space. Creative Greensboro, the city’s arts and culture bureau, offers one to four week residencies at GROW to creative individuals and organizations in Guilford County to produce new and original work that will encourage visitation and public engagement. Creative Greensboro welcomes suggestions from individuals, collaborative groups, or organizations experienced in producing and presenting creative programs.
