Harvey Hanig, a resident of North Aurora, received a Bachelor of Science in Industrial Design from the University of the Arts in Philadelphia in 1965. His images have been exhibited in various regional gallery and museum exhibitions since the 1970s and published in the Q-Section of the Chicago Tribune as well as in TribLocal. Hanig is know for his quirky photo documentary style, that secured him a spot as a featured artist in the West Chicago Community Banner Art Exhibition in both 2010 and 2011. He bears strong ties to the city of West Chicago through his many years serving both Norix and Bonar Plastics as a consulting industrial designer.
The series of photographs featured in this exhibition were selected for their humorous depiction of the (suburban) animal kingdom by People Made Visible Curator and West Chicago resident artist Anni Holm.
