Allan Houser: A Centennial Exhibition

 Hanover, N.H.—May 1, 2014— Allan Houser (1914–1994), one of the best-known Native American artists of the twentieth century, continues to be an influential figure in the field of Southwestern sculpture in the United States. This May, the Hood Museum of Art installs five sculptures by Houser in the Maffei Arts Plaza, adjacent to the museum and the Black Family Visual Arts Center. These works represent a cross-section of his large three-dimensional work from the years 1986 to 1992. Please join us for an opening event at 10:00 AM on Sunday, May 11, that will include a talk by Rettig and a light breakfast on the plaza amid the sculptures. The works will remain on view for a year.
