June 8 - October 5
The La Porte County Historical Society Museum is excited to announce it will be hosting an art exhibition of works by former La Porte resident Roland Hockett. Hockett, born in La Porte and a 1956 graduate of La Porte High School, spent the majority of his career as an art professor at Gulf Coast College in Panama City, Florida. Hockett earned a Master of Fine Arts degree from Indiana University and then taught at La Porte High School for three years before moving to Florida.
Hockett has graciously donated a number of items from his collection to the Museum, and the majority will be on display in this exhibit. He has produced numerous paintings, sketches, and sculptures throughout his lifetime. His works have been installed in the Florida Supreme Court, Panama City Florida International Airport, and the U.S. Embassy in Costa Rica.
The Roland Hockett Exhibit will include approximately 30 of the artist’s works including multi-media, copper work, paintings, and sketches, both framed and unframed. The exhibited works range from his early work to later pieces.
