2024 Artist: Vivian Finck

As Arts Marathon artists we will send a different example of our creative process and work to everyone who sponsors us, five days per week during April. We invite our friends, family, colleagues and anyone else who cares about art and wants to support Bridge to Rutland’s important work to sponsor us. Together we will help welcome new Americans who, in turn, will add immeasurably to our communities.

Vivian‘s Arts Marathon Goal
I will share poems accompanied by photographs I have taken.
Vivian‘s Background

Hello, I'm Vivian, a 22-year-old recent graduate from the University of Vermont with a degree in English, Writing, Reporting, and Documentary Storytelling. While my primary artistic focus has been writing, my recent six-month journey around the world has sparked a newfound passion for photography. My poetry often revolves around themes of nature, chronic pain, exploration, and growth—reflections of the experiences I encounter daily.

Photography has become a significant outlet for me, primarily capturing the beauty of nature. Lately, I've also delved into nature-themed portraits. Writing has been a lifelong pursuit, serving as a tool to make sense of the world around me. Photography, on the other hand, is a means not to make sense of life but to seize it before it slips away.

In a world saturated with social media and smartphones, where photos can sometimes lose their significance in the rush to capture time, I strive to be intentional with my travel camera. My goal is to preserve the moments that resonate with me deeply. I appreciate your consideration for sponsorship. It's for a noble cause, and I hope you find joy in exploring my work. Thank you for your support.
