Ken Hoffman arrived in Peoria in 1969, accepting the position of professor of painting at Bradley University. Since then, Hoffman, a graduate of San Francisco Art Institute, has spent fifty years developing a unique painting style which simultaneously explores the human qualities of animals and the animal qualities of humans. Beginning with a mural work painted in 1970, this exhibition explores the 50-year artistic journey which has realized these humorous, unmistakable, and often very large-scale paintings of animals in suits.
