The Dallas Morning News-January 20, 1999
Author: Joe Simnacher, Staff Writer of The Dallas Morning News

       Dan C. Wingren's unassuming and private nature made him much less well known than scores of lesser artists, friends say.
        Mr. Wingren, 75, died Dec. 31 of cancer at a Dallas convalescence  facility. Friends are planning a gathering in his memory at a later date.
        The former Southern Methodist University art professor's mild demeanor, however, was a plus to scores of his students, said Dr. William Jordan, former chairman of the SMU division of fine arts.
        "It's an amazing case because I rank Dan as one of the most sophisticated, subtle minds in the art world that I have ever known," Dr. Jordan said.
        Dr. Jordan has a good perspective to rank his friend's talent.  After leaving SMU in 1981, he spent nine years as deputy director of the Kimbell Art Museum in Fort Worth. More recently he has worked as an art consultant.
        "I've known a lot of people, and I would rank him way up there near the top," Dr. Jordan said. "At the same time, he was this totally unassuming, very hermitic person."
        Mr. Wingren was at SMU from 1959 to 1991. Dr. Jordan named him his
assistant at SMU after noticing the quality of his art and teaching.
        "He particularly helped with the studio side of the department's activity," Dr. Jordan said.
        Not well known outside the university, Mr. Wingren had paintings in private and corporate collections as well as museums throughout Texas, including the Dallas Art Museum. But, he didn't have the drive to become known for his work.
        "He was not an ambitious person," Dr. Jordan said. "He was just boundlessly generous with his time for his students."
        Mr. Wingren's relationship with his students took the place of the gratification of fame and recognition, Dr. Jordan said.
        "This kind of teacher in today's academic world is extremely rare," Dr. Jordan said. "There are countless students who came out of SMU . . . who owe a tremendous amount to Dan Wingren."
        Dallas artist David Bates, a former Wingren student who has recently gained national recognition, said his former professor will be sorely missed.
        "He was a great intellect and an inspiring teacher," Mr. Bates said. "He had this great contagious smile and a sense of humor to go with it. . . . all that together is a tough combination to find."
        Mr. Wingren, who was born in Dallas, served in the Army during World War II.
        He earned his bachelor's degree at SMU and a master's of fine arts degree from the University of Iowa.
        Mr. Wingren is survived by his longtime friend, Hal Corry of Dallas.
