Performing Academically: Mark Wittig

Guest Author: Richard Wills, Tulsa Art Studio Tour Committee Member
Mark Wittig, Developing Fluency, Installation & Performance, 2012. 
Mark Wittig, like many small children, was diagnosed with Dyslexia, a learning disability that can and often haunts the individual.  Wittig chose to face his difference and in doing so has become a champion of finding better methods of teaching those similar to him. 
Mark Wittig, Books Belong To, Digital Print, 2012. 
With a varied background in architecture, photography, and painting, Wittig finds himself creating both installation and performance art. His goal is to interact with the public by bringing them into a more intimate dialogue about learning disabilities, and how our education system treats those afflicted with them.

Meet & see the working studio of Wittig along with 10 other artists on April 21-22, noon until 5 pm on the Tulsa Art Studio Tour. Read more in Art Focus Oklahoma magazine or purchase tickets here
