Dow Chemical Portrayed
Henry Knighton Hammond
May 7 – June 26, 2013
Looking down the Tittabawasee River toward the Dow Chemical Plant 1920
In 1920, the accomplished European
artist Arthur Henry Knighton-Hammond was commissioned to create renderings of
the Dow Chemical Company plant in Midland, Michigan. The commission was fueled
partially by company founder - H.H. Dow's desire to enhance the company's
public profile and thereby sales. The result is an invaluable artistic record
of the company's early plant.
