CCT: Michael Borders

Connecticut Artists Collection

Michael Borders (born 1946)
 
{Michael Borders} Michael Borders was born in Hartford, Connecticut, earned his MFA from Howard University, and currently lives in Bloomfield, Connecticut. He is a muralist, illustrator, and portrait painter, and has lectured at Fisk University, Trinity College, and the University of Hartford.
 
The Connecticut Artists Collection includes giclée prints of Borders' Connecticut Industry Mural is a touring 10-foot by 40-foot painting on canvas of: 1) the people who impacted Connecticut's industrial history, 2) the land where industrial history took place, 3) the machinery of manufacture, and 4) the products of manufacture in Connecticut. The mural pictorializes the way these four elements interfaced over roughly 350 years. Everything is positioned chronologically and geographically by county. It is a reflection of Connecticut's industrial experience from 1634 through contemporary times, a documentary mural. Discovering that history and reflecting it in a stimulating, historically-accurate, and aesthetically-pleasing way was the requirement.
