Lunch and Learn: The Story of Modern Art

This upcoming lecture will feature Mark Cohen. Mark Cohen is an award-winning graphic designer, marketing communications executive, teacher, painter, and printmaker. His subject matter utilizes contemporary and past iconic figures from all walks of life, including politics, popular culture, entertainment, and war and peace. Most of his paintings are striking large scale, monochromatic works. They have energy, impact, and size. They exhibit a sparse and concise pictorial composition that combines abstract expressionism and pop art in their execution. In these works, viewers can investigate issues of anti-Semitism, genocide, and bigotry. By using art to examine these issues, he hopes to remind viewers that we live in a world of continuing hateful biases that result in senseless killings around the world and that we should end hatred and promote understanding toward all people. 

Armory students and the general public are invited to attend this new free and exciting opportunity. Lunch and Learn is held once a month from 12:45 - 1:30 pm in our library.
