- Chris’ board at the exhibition shows a full work up of his process in a Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial image.
Chris is one of the Bay areas most talented artists and conceptual designers. Through a richly illustrated Powerpoint presentation, Chris will discuss the nature of drawing, and the critical role it plays in helping us see more clearly and be better designers.
Christopher Grubbs’ illustration career began as a student, drawing for R. Buckminster Fuller’s “Old Man River” domed city project for East Saint Louis, Illinois. He has drawn for the National September 11 Memorial, New York, the Walt Disney Family Foundation Library, Crissy Field in San Francisco, master plans for historic Charleston, the Grand Canyon Village Interpretive Center, Beijing Financial District, Shanghai Riverfront, Hong Kong, Washington D.C. and the 2000 Sydney Olympics. His drawing skills have lead him to become a design consultant at Yellowstone National Park, for New Orlean’s Broadmoor neighborhood, the Martin Luther King, Jr. National Memorial in Washington D.C., and major urban master plans throughout China. A Visiting Assistant Professor at Washington University in Saint Louis, he has lectured and held workshops at Colorado State University, Montana State University, Rhode Island School of Design, the University of California at Berkeley.
