Organized by the Amon Carter Museum of American Art and drawn from the Museum’s holdings of Richard Hunt’s Tamarind Lithography Workshop prints, Richard Hunt: "From Paper to Metal" highlights the works on paper by one of the most illustrious and prolific sculptors of the 20th and 21st centuries.

Hunt was the first Black artist to receive a retrospective at the Museum of Modern Art, New York, in 1971. He has created over 150 public sculptures across the country, and his work is in numerous institutions. "From Paper to Metal" examines the artist’s interests outside of the sculptural form.

Featuring 25 lithographs from 1965 which have never been on view, the exhibition explores the spatial and figurative ideas Hunt executed in his Tamarind work, which informed the sole sculpture included in the exhibition, "Untitled [Hybrid Forms]," highlighting the transformation of 2D graphic ideas to the 3D direct-welded sculptural technique.
