Additional Information

Daniel Heyman believes that great art needs not be "pleasurable", but something that "can break through the complacency of our lives."

Heyman's Portrait of David contains statements made by the person portrayed about stereotypes involving his ethnicity. In this regard, the artwork reminds us that poor health is not confined to physical conditions, but to emotional health as well. Emotional well-being is a dimension of overall health, which can result from being rejected by the larger community and made to feel different and less valued than others.

Sundog Multiples was a printmaking venture created by Art & Design Professor Kim Fink, in conjunction with UND Art Collections, and generously funded by the Myers Foundations.
