In conjunction with the Figge Art Museum, Davenport, Iowa, CMA presents William L. Hawkins: An Imaginative Geography, the first major exhibition in more than a decade featuring the Columbus artist. From his exotic wild animals to dramatic depictions of Columbus landmarks, William Hawkins created works that are intense, playful, wondrous, quirky, and amboyant. An Imaginative Geography explores this fascinating, self-taught genius with more than 60 important works. The exhibition was curated by Susan M. Crawley, scholar and independent curator, formerly the curator of folk art at the High Museum of Art, Atlanta. Drawn from important public and private collections from across the United States and Europe, the exhibition includes CMA’s newly acquired Ohio Stadium painting and both well-known and rarely seen works.
