Olga Florenskaya works in a number of different fields of art including sculpture, painting, graphics, book illustrations, sculpture, ceramics, animation and film. Inspiration for her artwork often comes in the form of maps and architecture that is recreated within 3-dimensional sculptures. This sketch is of the Piazza del Popolo and Via del Corso, literally translating to the “People’s Square,” a large urban area in Rome. In 2001, Olga and her husband Alexander Florensky, had a series of guest lectures at GVSU and an exhibit, “Olga and Alexander Florensky: Miscellaneous” at the GVSU Art Gallery in the Thomas J. and Marcia J. Haas Center for Performing Arts
