Marcus Mannino (January 9, 1952 – December 1, 1989)
Marcus Mannino was a Detroit native artist who studied at the College for Creative Studies, Detroit. His work encompassed drawing, painting, sculpture, printmaking and notably, fiber art. Initially involved in the then-nascent gay culture and Detroit art scene of the 1970s, Mannino moved to New York City in the 1980 and continued to create original works, all displaying a distinctive homocentric sensibility.
