Jo Hansen: Legacy
The Museum will present a section from one of art pioneer Jo Hanson's best-known works, "Crab Orchard Cemetery," a re-creation of her family's ancestral graveyard in Illinois. The original show premiered in 1974 at the Corcoran Gallery of Art in Washington, DC. In the 1980s, the exhibition toured other museums, including the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art and the Utah Museum of Fine Arts. "There Are Many Mansions," a piece from the Crab Orchard series, is in the permanent collection of SFMoMA.
