Bob Nunn — one of the earliest and most influential artists to take up residence in Dallas’ famed Deep Ellum neighborhood– is the subject of a career retrospective exhibition opening this Saturday, September 11 in the Main Gallery at Irving Arts Center. 

Both exhibits, Bob Nunn: A Retrospective and Yikwon Peter Kim: Inevitable Progression III, will be on view September 11 through November 13. The galleries are free to view Tuesday through Saturday from noon to 5 PM.

Bob Nunn was not only a true educator, but also a mentor – one who cared and showed his support fully to all students,” says Kim. 

He was always there, accessible to students needing help to overcome their struggles.  In addition to being a master of painting and drawing, he was known and respected for his wonderful sense of humor, laughter and the humanity in his heart.  I recall that he would have lunch with students in the cafeteria or in his classroom and was a wonderful listener and provider, engaging in conversations about art, cultural, social and political matters and just life itself.  For me and no doubt for others, what we learned in those times was probably as valuable in later life as what we were learning in the classrooms and studios.  To me and others, he was more than a father figure.
