Thornton Dial

September 11, 2021 – July 16, 2022
The Tiger Cat



In 2021, the Hood Museum of Art acquired ten artworks from the Souls Grown Deep Foundation, including the three by Thornton Dial that form Thornton Dial: The Tiger Cat. This exhibition celebrates this acquisition, asking us to look closely at Dial's work and consider the ways in which it broadens our understanding of American art.

This exhibition is organized by the Hood Museum of Art, Dartmouth College, and was generously supported by the Cissy Patterson Fund and the William B. Jaffe Memorial Fund.
