Each academic semester, NIU undergraduate artwork is selected to be on display in the NIU President’s Office in historic Altgeld Hall (room 300). A public reception will be held on Wednesday, April 12, from 4 to 5 p.m., to showcase these works and to celebrate the artists. The NIU student curator Kelsea Nichols, who created the exhibit, will be in attendance to speak on making the selections and preparing the works for display.
Please join us for this reception and then stay for a roundtable discussion with the Northern Star Cartoonists in Altgeld 315 from 5 to 6 p.m.
The NIU Art Museum will also be open on this date from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Make sure to see the Spring 2017 Exhibition Suite which explores the nuanced ways artists respond to their social and political landscapes using visual language and hyperbole to critique, valorize and satirize the events and subjects of their times—often making us grimace and laugh in the process.
