Hillyer Art Space Exhibition | thru February 27, 2009

Tools for Change: Selections from the Hechinger Collection, features 18 pieces from the Hechinger Collections that remove tools from their utilitarian, invisible state and in turn places them under the spotlight. The exhibition transforms the ordinary tool into an object of art to be admired, and above all, reminds us that our tools are a way of change: for better or worse.

Featured artists include: Yuri Avvakumov, Franz Bader, Barton Lidice Benes, Roy Carruthers, Jim Dine, William Eggleston, Henryk Fantazos, Howard Finster, Tom Hebert, Manuel Hughes, Rosenbloom Kaplan, Jacob Lawrence, Fernand Leger, Michael Mazur, Claes Oldenburg, Dusan Otasevic and Rico Solinas.
