H.C. Westermann

February 14, 2002 – May 12, 2002

Museum: Hirshhorn Museum & Sculpture Garden

Location: Level 2

This retrospective of American sculptor H.C. Westermann (1922-1981) features the artist's sculptural work in depth, covering his career from his first mature works in the mid-1950s to his final works made in 1981. It reveals his unique position in 20th-century postwar American culture as an artist whose hand-craftmanship and artistic aims to communicate universal human emotions set him apart from the mainstream.
