KRISTA CLARK

Academic Program Director, Art
Professor Clark was born in Burlington, Vermont and currently lives and works in Atlanta, Georgia. Her work is in the permanent collection of the High Museum of Art and the Museum of Contemporary Art in Atlanta, GA.

With a student to faculty ratio at 15:1, men of Morehouse know they won’t be lost in a large classroom setting and benefit from close working relationships with faculty throughout their time at Morehouse College. 

Our faculty community values the important work of higher education, the creativity of innovative problem solving of our interdisciplinary curriculum, and the unique perspectives each member brings.

Additional Information

Clark’s work has been featured at the Studio Museum in Harlem, RedLine Contemporary Art Center in Denver, The United States Embassy in Bratislava, Slovakia, The Atlanta Contemporary Art Center and the High Museum in Atlanta.

Her work utilizes the visual language of architecture and the literal physicality of building materials to create collaged drawings and site-specific installations. Each work is steered by her observations of shifting urban landscapes then broken down and retold through abstraction. By incorporating building materials as formal components alongside conventional drawn elements, Clark augments our relationship to these materials, and ultimately the space and community in which we use them.

AWARDS & HONORS
  • Artadia Award
  • Working Artist Project Award
