Julia Vogl is an artist originally from Washington DC who has done a lot of work in London, England. On January 11, 2009, she was funded by The Brooklyn Arts Council to create an installation in Fort Greene Park entitled Blades of Fort Greene.[1] While attending the Slade School of Art in London she completed two other major public art works. The first was entitled "Colouring the Invisible," at the School of Slavonic and East European Studies SEESS.[2] The second for her Degree show was a work entitled "£1 000 000 | 1 000 opinions (where would you allocated £1 000 000 of public spending?)".[3] Julia Vogl was the recipient of the Catlin Art Prize in 2012.[4] She went on to receive an Arts Council England Grant to make her self-initiated cultural olympiad work: HOME, a public art project for Peckham.[5]

During 2013 Julia Vogl was involved in a participatory artwork at the Discovery Museum Newcastle upon Tyne. The medium of the piece was recycled plastic bottles.[6][7] Her presence in Newcastle was the result a Museums At Night competition[8] that matched ten contemporary artists with ten museums for the weekend of May 16–18, 2013.
