LabelChicago-based Richard Hunt is one of the first African American artists to succeed as a public sculptor, fulfilling more than 150 commissions around the world since 1967. His work is typically abstract, although he creates the forms of his artworks in response to specific physical and social environments. Hunt is also an accomplished printmaker. This print comes from a portfolio of eight lithographs that Hunt created in 1965 during a residency at the renowned Tamarind Workshop in Los Angeles. It was the first work by an African American artist acquired by Hope College for its teaching collection back in 1968.
