CURRENT PUBLIC ART PROJECT:
Skycycles, a New York City Percent for Art project, will be installed in 2015 at “Ocean Breeze,” a new, state-of-the-art, Parks and Recreation Track and Field house under construction on the shore of Staten Island. Villinski’s project consists of three suspended “flying bicycle” sculptures and is five years in the making.
Dreamdesk, a City of New Haven Percent for Art project, was installed in May at the East Rock Community Magnet Elementary School’s new building. The sculpture transforms a school desk from the former school building into a “flying desk” which hangs in an entranceway to the school and incorporates hand-written text from hundreds of the school’s students on its wings.
Crossing, an installation of 280 over-size butterflies, was installed in July in “Quantum of the Seas,” a new Royal Caribbean Line cruise ship. The installation occupies a 90’ high wall in the ship’s main elevator atrium, as well as ceilings leading to the atrium.
Villinski published his first print with Neptune Fine Arts, an aquatint-etching entitled Yes. The print was recently acquired by the Cleveland Clinic, Cleveland, OH and the Museum of Contemporary Art, Jacksonville, FL.
In 2013, the studio produced 21 site-specific installations in 13 cities across the US, for private and corporate collections. This two-minute video documents the installation process at the corporate headquarters of Nu Skin, in Provo, UT
