A man so big, so physically gifted at 6-foot-2, 230 pounds and as durable as an ox on the football field, he surprised people with his affection for art. "Coaches in pro football found out I was an artist and it was very hard for them to put those two things together as a viable occupation, " Hinton recalls. The rap on artists is they are sensitive and it takes a certain character and personality.
The rap on football players is they are brutish, slightly more evolved than a caveman. Hinton was born in Columbus, Ga. But moved to Saginaw with his family at age 2, when his father, Eddie, found work at General Motors to help manufacture products for World War II. While he always studied and worked with art, much like his two older brothers, Hinton also had a great love for football because it was fun.
With help from track coach Herb Korf -- where he was a longtime area record holder in the shot put with a throw of 54-feet-61/4 inches -- Hinton earned an athletic scholarship to the University of Iowa. The Saginaw County Sports Hall of Fame will honor him in its seventh class of inductees. Hinton was humbled by the news. The only thing I regret is that my father won't be at the ceremony. He died last March, the Flagstaff, Ariz.He knew that I was being considered but it was so unexpected at this age. See, when I was young, my father would ask what I wanted to do and I would tell him I wanted to be a commercial artist and a football player. My father was concerned about football because of the risks and the pyramid factor of, the higher you go in the sport, fewer people have a chance to be successful.
He never tried to persuade me away, but felt both occupations were risky. That's why I feel I've been lucky all of my life.
I've pursued two loves and both of them worked out for me. Hinton studied art and physical education at Iowa as he got playing time as a sophomore. He started as a junior at defensive end and by the time he was a senior, he never left the field, starting and playing both ways while being nominated to the Coaches Association All-American team. "We played both ways in those days and I always hated practice, " Hinton said I understood it's importance, but I loved to play in the games.
I'd always find a way to get to my opponent or get them off of their game. I'd be the dominant one.
The Dallas Cowboys and Dallas Texans were both interested in signing Hinton out of college but he was apprehensive because of the racism that still existed in the South. He was drafted by the American Football League Texans in 1962, but spurned the deal and moved to Mexico to begin work as an artist. He soon changed his mind and moved to Toronto, where he played with the Argonauts in a six Canadian Football League career that included stints in Winnipeg and Montreal. He worked as an artist throughout eight years of living in Canada.
"But as I pursued that career, most people didn't take me serious because I didn't have a degree and I was a football player, " Hinton said. I wanted to prove them wrong. His works have evolved from figurative work, to abstract art and eventually collage and three dimensional abstractions.
In the last 10 years, Hinton describes his work of usage in mixed media or as Hinton puts it: It's industrial materials, found objects, plastics, polymers, roplex, silica and metals, as collage elements affixed to a metal base. Recently I have been painting on aluminum, and attaching anodized titanium and wood. Hinton ultimately wanted to educate.
He taught painting and drawing as an associate professor at Western Michigan from 1970 through 1977. He accepted that same position at the University of Michigan, eventually receiving full professor status in Ann Arbor in 1982, a post he held until retiring in 2007. Hinton's artwork is wordwide and can be viewed in Iceland, Japan, Brazil, France and Canada. He continues to set up exhibits around the country, and some notable work includes a mural at the State of Michigan Historical Center in Lansing.In 1983, he was appointed to the Michigan Council for the Arts and in 2000, Iowa recognized him as a distinguished alumnus. When he's not spending time with his second wife, Sei, a Japanese artist he married in 1998. They spend nine months in Arizona and three months in Komoro, Japan -- approximately 75 miles north of Japan. "I'm going to banquet with my wife, then we're flying out to Japan, " said Hinton, who had three children from his first marriage. We're both committed and devoted to our art. That's what's great about this profession.
Football player retire very early, doctors retire because it's hard to hold that practice at a certain age. You can be an artist for an entire life.
