Minneapolis-based artist and writer, Eric Hanson, will spend part of his summer as an artist-in-residence inside the Minneapolis Institute of Arts’ Research and Reference Library.

Hanson, whose illustrations and writing have appeared in Vanity Fair, Harper’s, New York Times, Rolling Stone, McSweeney’s and The Atlantic, has been selected as the next resident in Coffee House Press’s CHP In The Stacks: A Writers and Readers Library Residency Program.

A longtime resident of Minneapolis, Hanson has made a career out of his pencil, ink, and watercolor illustrations, publishing them in magazines and newspapers across the world. In 2008, he published A Book of Ages: An Eccentric Miscellany of Great and Offbeat Moments in the Lives of the Famous and Infamous, Ages 1 to 100 (Crown). More recently, his work has appeared on the covers John Waters’ bestselling autobiography, Role Models (Farrar, Strauss, and Giroux, 2011) and former New Yorker editor Daniel Menaker’s memoir, My Mistake (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, 2013).

In addition to his time in the library’s Reading Room, Hanson will receive a special opportunity to meet with museum curators inside the museum’s Photography & New Media and Prints & Drawings Study Rooms.

“For years, historians and art-lovers alike have used the library to conduct in-depth research of art and artists,” said Assistant Librarian Jessica McIntyre. “We’re especially excited to give someone an opportunity to use our space and our archives to make art.”

Hanson will give a public presentation and present new work on Thursday, June 19th at 7pm in the MIA’s Friends Community Room. This free event is part of the Museum’s Third Thursday event series. The evening will include a conversation with Hanson, McIntyre, and Chris Fischbach (Publisher of Coffee House Press), as well as a display of Hanson’s illustrations.

Eric Hanson’s cover illustration of a VERY full house for the Christian Science Monitor is for a feature article about cooperative cohabitation in today’s sharing economy.
