Carl Marin, Moby Dick and the end of hunting on Artblog Radio

Roberta and Libby interview Carl Marin in this 12-minute podcast for Artblog Radio.

Our series sponsor is Fleisher Art Memorial.

Carl Marin’s art, which includes sculpture, installation, photography and taxidermy, will be on exhibit at FLUXspace in June. The son of a hunter and taxidermist, Marin puts animals in his work in surprising ways to explore man’s changing relationship with the natural world.  He is one of five semifinalists for a commission to create a public art piece for a Philadelphia playground. Marin is planning to go to grad school in the fall, but for now his day job is making bikes at Bilenky Cycles.carlmarinCarl Marin.
