TO KNOW HIM WAS TO LOVE HIM: CELEBRATING THE WORK OF KEVIN MITCHELL
Rust Hall Alumni Gallery (Memphis College of Art) / 1930 Poplar Ave. July 8 - August 4th
To Know Him Was to Love Him: Celebrating the Work of Kevin Mitchell (1967-2019) showcases works by the late Kevin Mitchell, Memphis College of Art alumnus (BFA ‘94, MFA ‘10) and faculty member. A native Alabamian, Kevin moved to Memphis in 1991, where his passion for teaching led him to be an instructor to hundreds of MCA students. His work as a multidisciplinary artist, designer, and mentor made a lasting impact on both MCA and the greater Memphis community. Kevin’s works often feature perceived contradictions that manifest via colors, textures, forms, and iconography.
