Each war leaves behind rubble that shapes today and tomorrow – physically, psychologically and spiritually.

“Out of Rubble,” a reaction to the wake of war, its realities and its representations, is the current exhibition at the Jack Olson Gallery.

International artists and architects consider war’s causes and consequences, its finality and future, moving from decimation and disintegration to the possibilities of regeneration and recovery.

As the United States has just marked 13 years of war in Afghanistan, “Out Of Rubble” is all too timely.

The exhibition is open until Thursday, Oct. 16; a reception is planned from 4:30 to 6 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 9, with a public lecture to follow at 6 p.m. Gallery hours are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Thursday and from 10 a.m. to noon Friday.

For more information, call (815) 753-4521 or email JackOlsonGallery@gmail.com.
