Alumnus Returns to the Site of His Inspiration

When he was a Columbia student in the late 1920s, Mark Freeman was well known as the campus artist. He "draws and draws, from dawn till day is done," according to his senior profile in the 1930 Columbian, the College yearbook.

His work distinguished the Columbian, where his redesign and Art Deco illustrations brought the annual to a new modernity, and the literary magazines "Morningside" and "Varsity." He was art editor of all three.

To mark the 65th reunion of the Columbia College Class of 1930, Freeman, courtesy of Hirschl and Adler Galleries, has lent more than 50 of the original drawings and linoleum-cut illustrations produced during his college years as well as other works and photographs documenting the architectural transformation then occurring in New York for display at Columbia in "New York in Transition: The Work of Mark Freeman."

His eyewitness drawings of architectural works-in-progress such as Riverside Church, the Cathedral of St. John the Divine, Radio City and the George Washington Bridge are among the items on view in Low Rotunda from May 2 to June 7.

After studying at Columbia's School of Architecture (M. Arch. '32), the National Academy of Design and the Sorbonne in Paris, Freeman acquired wide recognition as an artist during a professional career spanning six decades. In numerous drawings he recorded his fascination with the changes in the urban environment, repeatedly visiting demolition and construction sites. Also an innovator in the early use of airbrush rendering in color, his futuristic depictions of the New York World's Fair of 1939 with its theme of "the World of Tomorrow" are among the works on view at Columbia.

Also on display are selections from his series of black and white photographs recording the demolition of Pennsylvania Station, the McKim, Mead & White landmark torn down in the 1960s. The 86-year-old artist is currently preparing to publish the photographs in a volume to be titled The Death of Pennsylvania Station. A selection of his New York drawings were published in 1992 in an oversize volume titled Reaching for the Sky.

Freeman has exhibited widely in the United States and abroad. His works are in the collections of more than 20 major museums, including the Museum of Modern Art, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the Corcoran Gallery in Washington and the British Museum in London. He was elected a member of the National Academy of Design in 1992.

Mark Freeman served as president of the American Society of Contemporary Artists from 1975 to 1977.
