University Galleries will exhibit artwork by more than 180 talented alumni to welcome them to our new space in Uptown Normal and celebrate their accomplishments.

All alumni of Illinois State University’s School of Art were invited to participate in this open-call exhibition. Neither a degree in studio art nor a diploma was a requirement. All works submitted will be displayed; the only stipulation imposed was that each piece must measure no more than 20 inches in any dimension. The exhibition will include drawings, prints, sculptures, ceramics, photographs, metals, glass, paintings, collages, and videos.

The opening reception will be from 5–7 p.m. Saturday, September 19. The exhibition will continue through October 19. Alumni Relations will host a public reception at University Galleries in conjunction with the beginning of Homecoming week and the Uptown Normal tree-lighting ceremony from 6–8 p.m. Monday, October 19.

The Alumni Spectacular 2015 coincides with the first anniversary of University Galleries’ move to Uptown Normal, the Town of Normal’s 150th anniversary, and the kickoff for Illinois State University’s Homecoming festivities.

All events are free and open to the public. Free parking is available for the first hour or after 5:01 p.m. in the deck directly above University Galleries.
