Illinois State University Student Art Gallery, Central Illinois Regional Airport

Exhibition: Exposures
On view through September 5

The photography area of Wonsook Kim School of Art at Illinois State University is excited to present Exposures, featuring work that not only spans the depth and breadth of its student body, but also highlights a range of the photographic medium. Using a variety of techniques and approaches, from documentary storytelling to abstract studies of the body to cameraless photograms, these student artists have chosen to use photography as an avenue for creative expression. 

Exposures features the work of Toni DiPrima (B.F.A. art ’22), Hyojung Lee (B.F.A. graphic design ’21), Matt Frostman (B.A. photography ’21), Katherine Vernon (B.F.A. photography ’21), and Shahrzad Hamzeh (M.A. theatre studies ’20). It is the fifth exhibition featured at the Illinois State University Student Art Gallery in the Central Illinois Regional Airport (CIRA), located across from the main entryway inside the terminal building at 3201 East Empire Street in Bloomington. Gallery hours are consistent with the operating hours of the airport. The exhibition is free and open to the public.
