Appleton to Exhibit 'ReTooled: Highlights from the Hechinger Collection'

The Appleton Museum of Art, College of Central Florida, will exhibit “ReTooled: Highlights from the Hechinger Collection,” an engaging and thought-provoking look at the unexpected subject of tools, through 41 inspiring paintings, sculptures, works on paper and photographs.

Curated by Jared Packard-Winkler and organized for tour by International Arts & Artists, Washington, D.C., “ReTooled” is on view at the Appleton Thursday, Nov. 8, through Jan. 4, 2015, in the Edith Marie Appleton Gallery.

The Appleton will host a Director’s Circle reception Thursday,

“ReTooled” celebrates the prevalence of tools in our lives with art that magically transforms utilitarian objects into fanciful works that speak of beauty, insight and wit. Providing a dynamic entry point into the rich themes, materials and processes of 20th century art, “ReTooled” profiles 28 visionary artists from the Hechinger Collection including major artists such as Arman, Richard Estes, Howard Finster, Red Grooms, Jacob Lawrence, Fernand Léger and H.C. Westermann; photographers Berenice Abbott and Walker Evans; as well as pop artists Jim Dine, Claes Oldenburg, and James Rosenquist.

Daily admission to the Appleton Museum of Art is $8 for adults; $6 for seniors 55 or better; $5 for students 18 and over; $4 for youths ages 10-18; and free for members, CF students, children ages 9 and under, and active military personnel and their immediate families.

About John Hechinger and the Hechinger Collection:
John Hechinger’s father founded the Hechinger Hardware store in 1911, but it was John Hechinger along with his brother-in-law who grew the store into a renowned chain throughout the mid-Atlantic region. Hechinger is often credited as one of the major figures in the transformation of the neighborhood hardware store to the “do-it-yourself” home improvement business. A fourth generation Washingtonian, community patron and activist, Hechinger was appointed by President Lyndon Johnson to be the first chairman of the D.C. City Council. He used his position to advocate for civil rights and diverse neighborhoods. Hechinger’s donation of his collection to IA&A for the purpose of sharing it with a broader public is yet another invaluable legacy. In the 1980s, Hechinger’s booming chain of hardware stores led him to purchase a new company headquarters. He found the offices to be efficient, but sterile. The barren space sparked an initiative to beautify the headquarters which launched Hechinger’s acquisition of a tool-inspired collection of diverse 20th century art.

Appleton to Showcase its Newest Art





The Appleton Museum of Art, College of Central Florida, will showcase its recent acquisitions for the first time in over two years in “Recent Acquisitions to the Appleton Collection.”

The collection of about 40 prints, paintings, coins and other objects added to the museum’s permanent collection since 2011 will be on display in the Balcony Gallery Saturday, Oct. 25, through Feb. 1, 2015.

“These acquisitions reflect the many cultures and time periods collected by Arthur I. Appleton with the earliest recent acquisitions of rare coins dating from Hellenistic Greece and Imperial Rome,” said Cindi Morrison, museum director. “They will join 20th century works by American Alexander Calder and Costa Rican Francisco Zuniga, as well as fine later paintings of Floridians and the Florida environment by Jack Thursby, Christopher Still, Mark Messersmith and the German-born painter Karl Zerbe.”

Cedar Key artist Chick Schwartz is represented with two whimsical works in bronze and glazed ceramic, while works by the Cuban artist Sandro de la Rosa bring captivating realism to the exhibition.

“We also have an elaborately decorated Chinese chest, which represents skilled craftsmanship in decorative arts from the past and is a welcome new addition to our Asian collection,” said Morrision.

Daily admission to the Appleton Museum of Art is $8 for adults; $6 for seniors 55 or better; $5 for students 18 and over; $4 for youths ages 10-18; and free for members, CF students, children ages 9 and under, and active military personnel and their immediate families.
The museum is open 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday, noon to 5 p.m. Sunday and closed on Monday, Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s Day.
