Hechinger Collection

The Hechinger Collection features nearly 400 works of art donated to IA&A by hardware-industry pioneer John Hechinger, Sr. in 2003. The collection’s contemporary prints, drawings, paintings, and sculptures incorporate tools and hardware, celebrating an overlooked subject through pun, wit, and wonder.
