When West Shore Community College professor Sharon Bluhm bought a house in rural Ludington in the 70s, she had no idea its previous owner was a pioneer in American art. The home was called "The Humps" by the artist who lived there: Manierre Dawson. Dawson was an abstract expressionist who has works in the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Smithsonian and the Art Institute of Chicago. Sharon Bluhm now has a new book about the artist. It's called "Manierre Dawson: Inventions of the Mind." Bluhm speaks about her book at WSCC October 25.
