Carol Becker, Dean at The School of the Art Institute of Chicago, has issued this email:
As many of you may already know, our dear friend and colleague, artist Robert Heinecken, died last week in Albuquerque. Our deepest sympathies go out to his wife Joyce Neimanas, who was a Professor in Photography at the School of the Art Institute for many years. Robert was an integral part of our community during the times he was in Chicago.
Art or Idiocy? is checking on this, but we believe Heinecken himself was an instructor and/or graduate advisor at SAIC as well.
