RVA walls and beyond – the meteoric rise of muralist Earl Mack

Earl Mack (BFA alumnus) is a designer, illustrator, and muralist quickly making a name for himself in RVA.

That name isn’t actually his real name (you may also know him as Zack Morris, though he was never on Saved By The Bell), but it’s a tough name to forget once you see the artwork he’s been producing.From his mural inside High Point Gallery (below) to his work as creative director for up-and-coming clothing brand Chilalay, Earl Mack has a lot going on right now, and if his plans come to fruition, 2015 will be the year that everyone in RVA (and beyond) gets familiar with his work.

Audiences are welcome to wander around 50,000 square feet and see a variety of completed and in-progress projects and meet the artists in LMCC’s Workspace artist residency program who have been working in the space since September 2014.

For those who visit, Open Studios with Workspace Artists-in-Residence will be a memorable weekend full of new ideas, perspectives and art forms.

All activity takes place in LMCC’s Studios at 315 Hudson Street
