Head Heart Hand: The Joyful Art of Tommy Simpson
This exhibition explores and celebrates creativity, using as a foundation the work of acclaimed artist Tommy Simpson. Best known for his furniture, Simpson’s invention and humor shows through many other media and formats, including textiles, ceramics, gouache, prints, poetry and prose. Simpson’s pieces do away with conventions, reimagine form and present the world from a fresh perspective.
Since his MFA from Cranbrook Academy in 1964, Tommy Simpson has been in more than 100 exhibitions, and is currently in the collections of major institutions such as the Philadelphia Museum of Art, The Boston MFA, the Museum of Arts and Design in New York City, the Renwick Gallery of the Smithsonian Institution, the Fuller Craft Museum in Brockton, Massachusetts, and the Racine Art Museum in Racine, Wisconsin.
