MFA Lecture Series: Marc Horowitz
Monday, November 20, 2006 - 8:15pm

Visiting artist Marc Horowitz will speak about his art. The event takes place at the 5th Ave Cinema, 510 SW Hall. Free and open to the public.

Marc Horowitz, a San Francisco based conceptual artist, has recently been featured on dozens of radio stations, newspapers worldwide, and national and international television programs simply because he wants to dine with strangers. Marc wrote "Dinner w/ Marc 510-872-7326" (his name and cell phone number) on a dry-erase board fixed to a desk-like piece of furniture, which was being shot as a retail product for the 2004 Crate & Barrel Catalog. He did it in hopes to have dinner with whoever calls the number from the catalog. The catalog was distributed and he received over 3000 calls. As a result, Marc has decided to take a year-long Trans-America journey to meet with as many people for dinner as possible and document this journey through writings, photographs, and digital recordings.
