John Steuart Curry exhibit coming to Dane Hansen museum

The Dane G. Hansen Memorial Museum in Logan  will present “John Steuart Curry,” an exhibit that runs from July 6 through Aug. 26. It will consist of approximately 25 works with an emphasis on the forces of nature.

Born in Dunavant, John Steuart Curry trained at the Chicago Art Institute and the Academie Julian in Paris. Although he taught at the Art Students League and Cooper Union in New York City, Curry rejected the impersonal quality of industrialism and instead favored subject matter reflective of his agrarian background.

In the words of Harry Wickey, “One is convinced that the story Curry painted actually happened. It seems to me that this fulfills Walt Whitman’s hope and prophecy of a truly great art growing out of American life.”

Museum hours are 9-12 and 1-4 Monday through Friday; 9-12 & 1-5 Saturday; and 1-5 Sunday and holidays.
