Eric Mueller Celebrates 40+ Years of Art

Katie Broun ’19 Arts Editor
Last month, the Hopkins Keator Gallery opened a new exhibit showcasing the work of Hopkins longtime art teacher Eric Mueller.
 The work spans Mueller’s life, going as far back as third grade. From baseball drawings to paper mache heads of members of the Hopkins community, and from wooden boxes and kayaks to self portraits and dinosaur truck paintings, Mueller’s work is a mixture of all types of media. His inspiration “comes from everywhere” and he works with objects and ideas that are home grown on The Hill. Mueller’s pieces include many caricatures that usually reside in English instructor  Donna Fasano’s classroom, where she annually teaches Charles Dickens’ Oliver Twist. Steven Broun ’21 said, “After reading Oliver Twist as a seventh-grader, it is fun to be able to rediscover some of the individual characters through the eyes of a Hopkins artist.” Other favorites of the Hopkins community were the “start to finish process of the dinosaur trucks” (Fi Schroth-Douma ’19) and “the beautiful stand that includes a glass from the old DPH (Day Prospect Hill School) building.” (Schroth-Douma ’19) The showcase will be open until April 6, 2018, and will be Mueller’s final showcase before his retirement in June of 2018.
