Mark Clark. Dancing Gods. 2012, oil on linen. Cultural Heritage Museum, San Benito, TX.
Mark Clark was born May 26th, 1948 in Honolulu, Hawaii. He spent most of his life in Corpus Christi where he grew to appreciate and cherish the local culture. He lived in the RGV for 15 years and invested in our local arts community as an artist and gallery owner in downtown Brownsville.
Join us in Mexica: Renacimiento, where art and anthropology meet in a dynamic showcase. This exhibit includes large-scale colorful interpretations of Mexico’s rich pre-Colombian history. The Aztecs, or Mexica as they called themselves, created books called codices that served as historical manuscripts. The oil paintings on view reference the Mexica codices and feature ritual sequences, Mexica gods, and mythology.
