The Blaffer Art Museum at the University of Houston will host Hugh Hayden's exhibit, "Boogey Men."

In his innovative work across mediums, Hayden creates anthropomorphic forms that explore our relationship with the natural world. Formally trained as an architect, Hayden deploys laborious processes - wood-carving, metalwork, industrial fabrication - that result in dynamic, surreal, and critical responses to personal experience and social and cultural issues.

Renowned for his use of wood - taking disparate natural species and manipulating them to reveal complex histories and meanings - Hayden crafts intricate metaphors and meditations on experience and memory that question social dynamics and the ever-shifting ecosystem.

Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display until August 21.
