Gift of the artist in honor of Mitchell D. Kahan
Hui Chu Ying, Professor of Printmaking at The University of Akron’s Myers School of Art was commissioned by the Akron Art Museum in 2012 to create a print to be given as gifts to each of the past presidents of the museum as part of the 90th Anniversary celebration. Layering – adding one thing atop another without altering either’s essence – is an important characteristic of Ying’s work. She places handwork over a mechanical process, color over color and image over pattern. In creating these prints for the past presidents, Ying used symbolism to commemorate them – the hands represent giving, the heart symbolizes passion and dedication, and the bird signifies a messenger between the community and the museum. This variable edition combines traditional printmaking, which is rooted in reproducibility, with stencils and drawing, resulting in a one-of-a-kind object.
