BAC Community Spotlight: Mark Cooper
Artist, BAC Board Member
How did you arrive at the Brookline Arts Center?
I was first introduced to the Brookline Arts Center many years ago when my partner taught ceramics here. We hosted several birthday parties for my daughter at the time.
My art heroes cover a wide spectrum of media and approaches. My heroes are the teachers in my early practice who through their mentorship made me believe in myself and the possibility of a life including art.
Do you have anything exciting coming up?
I have museum exhibitions in Vietnam and China coming up in the next few months.
