Art created and inspired by high school students and educators will be on display from Tuesday, April 5-Friday, April 8, at Illinois State University’s Transpace Gallery in the Center for Visual Arts, room 115. The exhibit is free and open to the public, with an opening reception from 5-7 p.m. Tuesday, April 5.

The group art show, called “Dialogues,” will take place during the 2016 Art Education Heart of Illinois Conference (HOIC). The artwork showcased will include work by 10 seniors, four juniors, and 11 educators, a number of whom are Illinois State alumni. The HOIC Conference itself revolves around the opportunity for the high school students’ work to be juried while they take classes taught by the seniors at Illinois State.

“I look forward to teachers and students visiting ISU’s School of Art and becoming more aware of the vitality of its programs as well as the people in them” said Judith Briggs, Illinois State University’s art education associate and graduate coordinator. “The show opens the door to more School of Art community involvement and interaction as more people become aware of the resources we have here at ISU. It also highlights the vibrancy of our pre-service art educators and our local art education community.”

The Transpace Gallery hours are available online, or for more information, call the College of Fine Arts at (309) 438-5621.
