Containing nearly 400 works of art, the collection was donated to IA&A in 2003 by hardware-industry pioneer John Hechinger, Sr. Featuring contemporary prints, drawings, paintings, and sculptures that represent a variety of 20th-century art that incorporates tools and hardware by artists Berenice Abbott, Arman, Jim Dine, Walker Evans, Jacob Lawrence, Fernand Léger, and Claes Oldenburg, among others, the collection celebrates the ubiquity of tools in our lives with art that magically transforms utilitarian objects into fanciful works of beauty, surprise, and wit. This booklet was produced to engage the public in appreciating the uniqueness and value of this collection.
