Dan Wingren: The Image and the Magic

August 2019- August 2020
Hamon Arts Library Second Floor

Dan Wingren was an artist and teacher active in Texas, beginning in the 1940s when he was a student at SMU. After graduate school at the University of Iowa, he came back to Texas where he accepted art-related appointments in Austin and San Antonio before returning to Dallas in the 1960s. Primarily known as a painter, Wingren was both a popular and admired professor of art at SMU, where he taught several subjects including 19th- and 20th-century art history, contemporary art, design, drawing and painting.


In view of the fragile nature of the works of art shown in this exhibition, reproductions of the originals are exhibited.
