Compelled to Create presents spirit-infused work by “Mr. Eddy” Mumma, an individual who was driven to create hundreds of works of unique and powerful art. “Mr. Eddy,” a lonely shut-in due to complications from diabetes, painted hundreds of portraits and then refused to sell them, as were his “companions.” A master of color and composition, Mumma’s highly stylized paintings vibrate with emotion.
This exhibition is curated from the GACM Permanent Collection and private collections, made possible by gifts to the collection by Calynne and Lou Hill and Josh Feldstein.
