Chicago-based artist John Himmelfarb's exhibition, "TRUCKS," will be on view at Auburn University's Jule Collins Smith Museum of Fine Art from Saturday, Jan. 24, through Sunday, May 10. The survey of work, more than a decade in the making, showcases the iconic image of trucks as represented in painting, drawing, sculpture and printmaking.

Whether you are brand loyal to Ford or Chevrolet, there's an association that's uniquely American about the truck. That personal connection for the viewer and the transportation of ideas is what Himmelfarb considers in his exhibition. His artwork is found in the permanent collections of the High Museum of Art in Atlanta, the Museum of Modern Art in New York City, the Smithsonian Museum of American Art in Washington, D.C., and Auburn's Jule Collins Smith Museum of Fine Art.

Himmelfarb said he enjoyed talking to people about his artwork. Visitors will have that opportunity when the artist works on an unfinished, 35-foot-long painting on display in the museum's Bill L. Harbert Gallery during an artist-in-residency program Saturday, Jan. 24, through Friday, Jan. 30.
