About Marjorie

Marjorie Kouns is a New York-based artist and bi-lingual Spanish/English voiceover actor whose work is shown worldwide. Her current work focuses on connecting the public to art by encouraging active participation in the creative process.
“I get excited to see how the creative mind works in others by giving them the opportunity to try their own hand at this task,” says Kouns.



Kouns' current work, Shades of Shreveport,  will exhibit twenty of the original lampshades from the 'Well-Lit Chess Pieces' (NYC) public art project. These giant lamp covers will be installed over the street lights in the 700 block of Texas Street in downtown Shreveport, Louisiana from April 15 - June 13, 2010. This project is fiscally sponsored by Shreveport Regional Arts Council.   Well-Lit Chess Piecesproject for Washington Square Park 2005-06, was sponsored in part by Starbucks Neighborhood Park Grants Program, Knickerbocker Village NY, Inc., and Signature Properties NY, Inc. and was fiscally sponsored by Lower Manhattan Cultural Council. This two-part public arts project includes oversized Chess game pieces, and whimsical lampshades which adorned 26 tall standing lights along the four corner park entrances. Permanent public works on view include Sarkahc Neves a lighting installation in Time Square, NYC, and Peace Crane, a sculpture erected in tribute to Hiroshima victims at the Josephine Butler Parks Center in Washington, D.C. commissioned by Earth Day New York.
