Roger Hane at 80: Visions of an Illustrator presented by Robert C. Hunsicker

When: Wednesday, September 11, 2019 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Where: Mukaiyama University Room, University of Pittsburgh at Bradford

Description:

Robert C. Hunsicker will present a multimedia program on Roger Hane, a Bradford-born illustrator whose vision and works transformed the commercial art world. In 2009, Hunsicker authored Roger Hane: Art, Times and Tragedy.

During Hane’s 11-year professional career, he produced over three hundred published illustrations for many of the major publishing houses, magazines, and record companies. His life was cut short when he was murdered in Central Park at the age of 35, after being named Artist of the Year. As we pause to commemorate what would be the year of Hane’s 80th birthday, Hunsicker will reflect on Hane’s meteoric rise, his tragic demise and the impact of his work during his brief but extraordinary career.

Hunsicker will also introduce his latest book, Picture Stories, from Berlin to Babylon, which features the photography and stories of Peter Winkler from 1913 to 2006.This event is sponsored by the Friends of Hanley Library and the Blaisdell Foundation. (Free)
