“Oscar Bluemner: My Finest Design” at The Hand Art Center
August 19, 2021 - December 3, 2021
The Homer and Dolly Hand Art Center at Stetson University hosts “Oscar Bluemner: My Finest Design.” The exhibition’s title is derived from a message scrawled by Bluemner on one of more than 1,000 pieces of artwork that his daughter Vera Bluemner Kouba had bequeathed to Stetson University 24 years ago. The message is written on an architectural drawing Bluemner completed while working and living in Chicago between 1895 and 1900. “My Finest Design” presents work from Bluemner’s early schooling and career as an architect, and the influence of architecture that remained with Bluemner long after he left the field to pursue painting as a career.
