Mac Hornecker

Possibly the Midwest's most distinguished sculptor, Mac Hornecker was certainly accessible, versatile, and productive. From his studio in Arkansas, Hornecker brought forth works of wood, steel, stone, bronze, aluminum, and combinations thereof with expertise. From small pedestal pieces to massive works destined for rolling lawns on private estates or signature squares in corporate office parks, this sculptor produced steadily for over three decades. Asked about his inspiration, Hornecker stated: "My work is built around my interest in the history and topography of the landscape. Rivers, land forms, rocks, trees, and the way they effect one another as well as man and vice versa are constant themes. There is a play of tensions and balances." He added: "The weather is the most important!" and so must it be in his considerations about the integrity and permanence of all his major works. Hornecker was a sculptor with intentions for works lasting centuries, not decades. Mac made Iowa his home for many years, teaching at Buena Vista University in Storm Lake from 1971 to 2001. Born in Missouri, Hornecker attended Joplin Junior College before taking his BFA at the Kansas City Art Institute & School of Design. Then he completed his MFA at the University of Oklahoma. Annually, since 1972, Hornecker's vita lists multiple exhibitions, awards, and public commissions. The permanent private and public collections holding his works number above 30; and he is represented by galleries in Chicago, Omaha, Kansas City, and Springfield, Missouri. Selected works of Mac's are also on file with General Services, in Washington D.C. and in the publication of the National Endowment for the Arts' National Community Arts program. Hornecker passed away in October of 2011.
