Not sure what to say?

I count myself among the many that regarded Hank as a faculty mentor in studio arts at the University of Minnesota. It's not clear whether through Hank I learned more about art or about life. And that's why he stands among the most important educators in my life. I'm grateful, Hank.

I was saddened to learn of the passing of Hank Rowan. Professor Rowan was my favorite Professor at the University of Minnesota. He encouraged me to explore new ideas and concepts in painting and drawing and he had a profound influence on my work. I considered Hank a true mentor and I valued his encouragement and criticism.
My condolences to his family.
