Dallas Gets a British Invasion this April by Artist Michael Craig Martin
Michael Craig Martin Won't Be Coming to Dallas quietly.
Dallas Public Library
This year for its annual charity fundraiser MTV:REDEFINE, taking place on April 10, the Goss-Michael Foundation, in keeping with its educational mission, has adopted a more public attitude. The exclusive fundraiser that auctions off work from artists the likes of Mario Testino, David Salle, and Julian Schnabel will stay fancy and exclusive. But surrounding the main event, the foundation has teamed up with everyone from the Dallas Museum of Art to the Dallas Public Library to publicly display work from this year's featured artist, Michael Craig Martin.
Craig Martin is a world-renowned artist who grew up a mentor for many members of the generation of Young British Artists (or YBA's). His paintings of everyday objects are eye-catchers, using bright colors that seem to jump off the canvas. Craig-Martin's paintings are slated to be displayed at the Dallas Museum of Art, the Nasher Sculpture Center, Dallas Contemporary, the Meyerson Symphony Center, the Joule Hotel, le Bilbouquet, SMU and Northpark Center from April to August.
