Rocca to shared her creative journey from 2 dimensional foil and mixed media works into a world of wall sculpture reliefs and 3 Dimensional free-standing sculptures. “Pivot” is an interactive exhibit, presentation and discussion as Rocca opens her world of creativity for hands on exploration and participation from visitors.

“Every time I see works of art I am intrigued by the process and want to do the forbidden, touch the work. I am energized by interactions with the materials and processes, which fuels my creative expression. I want people of all ages to experience that energy, even if it’s in a small way, by touching, arranging and exploring my work with their hands.”
