Michael Craig-Martin: Art & Design
Sept 17 - Dec 21, 2014

This recent print series from conceptual artist Michael Craig-Martin treats icons of contemporary art and design in the artist’s signature style—rendered as spare, sharply graphic line drawings, with a flashy pop palette of colors in unexpected combinations. Craig-Martin was a star of the spectacular 2014 Friends of Art Patrons Trip to London and personally guided our lucky group through his unforgettable intervention at Chatsworth, home of the Duke and Duchess of Devonshire. The purchase of this portfolio, made possible through the generosity of Friends of Art “London Trippers,” brings the enthusiasm and energy of our experience home to campus. On view this fall, the presentation kicks-off the 50th Anniversary celebration of Friends of Art— who raise friends and funds in support of everything we do at the Davis!
