IN MEMORY OF MARY LAREDO HERBECK
It is with great sadness that we acknowledge the passing of Mary Laredo Herbeck on October 1, 2010. Mary served as the curator of the Ellen Kayrod Gallery at the Hannan Foundation for six years. During this time the gallery and art program at Hannan have flourished and provided a unique opportunity for hundreds of older professional and non-professional artists to share their talents and exhibit their work. She brought extraordinary passion and creativity to her work here at the Foundation and the community we serve. Her contributions and inspiration have created an environment of appreciation and commitment to art which will be ever lasting within the Foundation and the people who have had the opportunity to work with and learn from Mary Laredo Herbeck.

NEW CASTINGS: WORK BY ROBERT BIELAT
Totem Urban Cave Dwelling
Noted artist Robert Bielat has been creating sculpture for more than forty years, and has exhibited widely in the Detroit area and throughout the State. His masterful bi-metal castings and constructions of steel objects and stone reveal a raw formality that attempts to reconcile the “tension between man, nature and technology, acknowledging our human imprint on the past, and reminding us that we are the creators of our future” (RB).
