Art Imitating Life

Four artists and a mural – a collaborative project with a story

Exhibition Dates:  June 6 – July 19

Marin MOCA is now open with safety protocols in place!

Details found here.

Before social distancing became the new normal, teacher Kathleen Lack and her students met weekly for her Portrait and Figure class.

They shared ideas, inspiration, critiques and food. Out of this camaraderie an idea was born, inspired by the ensemble portraits of the 19th century. Eager to explore the artistic challenge of creating composite portraits that would include multiple individuals, the artists worked together to paint a 5 x 9’ circus-themed mural.

Featured in the MarinMOCA exhibit Harriet Burge, Kathleen Lack.
