Richard Hunt

Born 1935
Hometown Chicago, IL
Education
BAE, School of the Art Institute of Chicago, IL, 1957
Best known for his public sculptures, Richard Hunt's works fuse art, architecture, and the environment. By incorporating found materials and various metals into his works, Hunt uses an abstract expressionist style to create sculptures that suggest organic forms with humanistic qualities.

As the first African-American artist to have a major solo exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art (in 1971), Hunt continuously and consistently makes history. Around this same time, he was the youngest artist selected to exhibit at the Seattle World's Fair. His artwork can be seen all across the country and he has been the recipient of numerous awards and honorary degrees.
