 Join us as we view and enjoy the exhibition “Flood: New Works” by Mario Marzan February 4 – 8, 2013. Please consider attending Marzan’s lecture this Monday, Feb. 4, 5:30 p.m. – 6:30 p.m. located in Lee Hall, Room 100 as well as the reception following the lecture 6:30 p.m. – 7:30 p.m. located in the Acorn Gallery.

Mario Marzan’s work explores the shifting, changing and constantly evolving negotiation of geographical spaces in relation to individual and cultural identities and histories. From depictions of vast geographic locations to the intimate rooms of a house under construction, his work maps transient spaces as fluid sites of exchange. His work has been exhibited nationally, including New York, Washington, Pennsylvania, Louisiana, Ohio, Florida, North Carolina and Puerto Rico. His work has achieved numerous awards including a NALAC National Fund for the Arts Award and North Carolina Emerging Artist Grant. He received his MFA at Carnegie Mellon and BFA from Bowling Green State University. Marzan was born in San Juan, Puerto Rico and is currently and Assistant Professor of Art at The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
