'Richmond Barthe / Richard Hunt: Two Sculptors, Two Eras' featured works that survey the long and distinguished careers of two prolific sculptors. Born thirty-four years apart, Barthe's and Hunt's work presented two distinctive creative styles that underscored their commitment to three-dimensional expression. While Barthe created representational images that celebrated the human form in bronze, Hunt delivered his abstract ideas on nature and history in aluminum and bronze. The travelling exhibition was curated by Dr. Samella Lewis, professor emerita of art history at Scripps College, and produced by Landau Travelling Exhibitions. It was held at the Anacostia Museum from December 20, 1992 - February 28, 1993.
