Ben Cunningham

Ben Cunningham (1904-1975) arrived in San Francisco in 1925 and worked for the Federal Arts Project as a muralist. He developed a significant reputation on the East Coast with his hard-edge geometric paintings during the 1940s and 50s. The artist spent his formative years in Reno, and upon his death two large Nevada-inspired paintings were donated to the University of Nevada, Reno Department of Art.
