Tools as Art: the Hechinger Collection of Contemporary Art
Sonoma,

Event Description

The exhibition features witty and light-hearted works based on familiar forms—hammers, saws and wrenches—that transformed into art of great imaginative power using materials including wood, glass, metal, paper and stone that attracts contemporary art lovers of all ages. Tools as Art, is based from emerging to world renowned artists, including notable figures such as Arman, Jim Dine, Claes Oldenburg and Jacob Lawrence. The 47 motion-related and visually intriguing works selected for this exhibition were chosen with children, families and school groups in mind to foster many educational programming opportunities. The works form part of a collection originally owned by the late hardware-industry pioneer John Hechinger Sr., whose father started the Hechinger hardware chain in 1911. This exhibition was organized from the Hechinger Collection of International Arts& Artists, Washington, DC. This exhibition is sponsored in part by Gertrud and Harold Parker.
