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.
