Matheny / Words

In 1966, Bob Matheny made a small number of word sculptures related to anti-Vietnam war protests. Bob recalls donating  “Hate," “Win,” and “Bomb 'Em” to auctions to raise money to protest the war.

The sculptures were part of a series of letter and number works Bob did between 1965 and 1969. 
Read more about the series on Bob's website.

More of Matheny's work can be seen at the Spitting In The Wind exhibition, currently on view at OMA.
