Judith Belzer:
The Panama Project

Painter and Guggenheim Fellow Judith Belzer visited the Panama Canal Zone in 2015 to paint its recently expanded locks. Spending time both in Panama City and aboard a tugboat in the canal, her paintings deal with what she calls a “landscape of the Anthropocene” at both the small scale of intimate details and the grand scale of construction of the world’s largest ships.
