MARK NEWPORT: SUPER HEROICS
June 25 - September 3, 2005
http://asuartmuseum.asu.edu/newport

Artist Reception:
Friday, June 24, 7-9pm

For centuries, knitting has been associated with the feminine -- from medieval portraits of the Virgin Mary beatifically purling to Grandma's treasured knit afghans.   Arizona artist Mark Newport, however, views knitting and related domestic textile arts in quite a different way.  For him, they are symbols for understanding masculinity and brute strength -- and the unlikely means by which he is able to create the iconic wardrobes of the superhero.  Through methods traditionally associated with female cultural identity, Newport expresses his own ideas about male identity in American society in this, the very first museum solo exhibition of his work.

ABOUT THE ARTIST
Mark Newport was born in 1964 in Amsterdam, New York, and currently lives in Mesa, Arizona and works in Tempe, Arizona as a member of the faculty of the ASU School of Art. The artist did his undergraduate studies at Kansas City Art Institute ('86) and went on to earn an MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago ('91).

I would have to go on a Saturday after glass class since they aren't open late during the week. I get out of class at 1pm. What is everyone else's availability?
