ARTLab, Art Museum offer Get-on-the-Bus trips

Photo of a country roadARTLab is an interdisciplinary project initiated by the NIU School of Art investigating the in/visible as its overarching theme for 2010-2011.

ARTLab shares an interest in making visible the invisible structures — social, disciplinary, physical, linguistic, conventional, ritual — that shape our experience, including the imperceptible, the subliminal, the imagined, the remembered, the overlooked, the erased, the secret, the spectral, the sacred, the covert, the technological and the transcendent.
