Event Description
Mark Klett photographs the intersection of culture, landscape, and time. Originally working as a geologist, Klett established his artistic presence as the chief photographer for the Rephotographic Survey Project (1977-79), which orchestrated the re-photographing of Western sites first captured by surveyors in the late 1800s. His work has since been exhibited and collected nationally and internationally, including by the Spencer Museum of Art. This is a qualifying event in Design for students seeking Arts Engagement Certification.
