New Art Exhibit "The Urge to Mark" in the King Street Gallery Works by Artist Craig Kraft

Category: Arts at MC

Published: Nov 9 2018 12:00AM

The Department of Visual and Performing Arts invite you to the Takoma Park/Silver Spring Campus to view an exhibit by artist Craig Kraft: The Urge To Mark in the King Street Gallery.

Over the past 39 years, light sculptor Craig Kraft has gained national recognition for his innovative and unique neon light works. Kraft has made three life-changing trips searching for the origin of human mark making--art. He visited the caves of Southern France, even older ones in Sulawesi, Indonesia, and last year in Namibia, Africa. In all these places he found a similar urge to mark. The works in this exhibit will be the artist's response to these extraordinary experiences, and his understanding of the origin of the primeval need to mark with the origin of our spiritual need to connect.
