Frank Hewitt returned to Vermont at a time when young Americans were moving in large numbers from the cities to rural areas, in what is referred to as the “back-to-the-land” movement. After establishing himself in the New York art world, Hewitt came to UVM in 1970 as associate professor of art. Here he was part of a vibrant group of creative people at the University and in the greater Burlington community who responded to the Vermont environment.
Hewitt pondered a difference in sensibility:
Join us for a discussion with three members of Burlington’s art community as they share their insights about the creation of The Four Corners Series, and how it defined Vermont in new ways.
The discussion will feature Bill Davison, professor emeritus, Department of Art, UVM; Karen Hewitt, toy designer and educator; and Bill Lipke, professor emeritus, Department of Art, UVM.
Read more about The Four Corners Series exhibition on the Fleming Museum website, under Changing Exhibitions.
