The late Arthur Higgins (1942–2011) was a prolific sculptor, painter and printmaker. He spent much of his career in Alaska, where he completed more than 40 public art commissions. Higgins moved to Mosier, Oregon, in 1986, and there produced many kinetic sculptures, two of which are the collection of Maryhill Museum of Art. This exhibition features 20 of Higgins’ lithographs and woodblock prints—many of which reproduce Pacific Northwest landscapes, plants and bird species.
