DESCRIPTION

Veteran Chicago painter and printmaker John Himmelfarb adds sculpture to his repertoire in this exhibition's thematic treatment of trucks. With a tour-de-force in range of materials and methods, Himmelfarb delves into our fascination with this iconic vehicle in a variety of styles — some cartoonish, some expressionist and some harkening back to the artist's more typical hieroglyphics.
