Mark Dion is originally from New Bedford Mass. He is an artist who specializes in curating, organizing, and scientifically documenting the nature of objects, or the ideas of nature that are reflected through objects. He makes site-specific installations that draw from his personal museum of artifacts. He is very interested in exploring the idea of the museum, geology, anthropology, biology and archeology through a creative and artistic means.
Both of these artists are useful for us as we move forward and plan our own exhibition that will happen on December 14th!
