This event has ended.

In spite of his appeal, Hanson remains something of a singular artist. Trained at Cranbrook at the height of abstraction is the U.S., his embrace of the figure, naturalistic representation, and the forthright socio-political consciousness in his work were somewhat radical for the time. Indeed, his earliest pieces from the '60s often met with significant resistance from both the public and media, as it frankly addressed such issues as war, racism, and poverty.
The exhibition presents Hanson's work from the early '70s, when he channeled the overtly political slant of his '60s art into a focus on the more subtle, but no less powerful intrigue of plain, everyday people.
