Adolph Hannemann

On display
year round

Adolph Hannemann (deceased) lived and created on a farm in rural Lincoln county. This self-taught artist shaped and fashioned exquisite wood, stone and bone carvings.

Hannemann, an intuitive carver was actively creating from 1976 through the mid 1990's. Over one hundred and thirty sculptures, primarily from native Kansas woods, were donated by the family . A major exhibit of all of Mr. Hannemann's work was held in 2009-2010.

Hannemann's trademark is the multiple heads which he titled the "Choir," "Congregation" and "The Fuzz."

He carved nearly a thousand portraits of people expressing a wide gamut of emotions, and a smaller number of animal sculptures.
