Happy Landing
 by Charles Hinman, on loan from the collection of Carl & Marilynn Thoma Art Foundation, will be available for public viewing at The Kreeger Museum’s upcoming exhibition Charles Hinman: Structures, 1965-2014, opening April 18.

Charles Hinman (b. 1932) is a New York-based abstract painter who pioneered three-dimensional, shaped canvases starting in the 1960s. Hinman is best known for his compositions that emerge from the wall in a collection of hand-built and multi-colored planes, expanding the conventional space of the canvas. Guest curated by Danielle O’Steen, the exhibition offers a look at 50 years of the artist’s innovative work. Structures is the first museum show of Hinman’s work in the Washington D.C. area and the first survey of his work in more than 30 years.


Exhibition events:
Thursday, April 18, 10:00am-12:00pm — Member & Media Preview
Wednesday, May 1, 7:00pm — In Conversation: Vesela Stretonovic and Danielle O’Steen
