The Emergence: The National Arts of Central Illinois exhibition (September 30, 2017 - January 14, 2018) is a collaboration between the Museum and nationally recognized artists and institutions to showcase work, share ideas, build strong community relationships, and continue to develop the national identity of the arts in Central Illinois. (*Regular Museum admission applies to exhibitions.) To learn more about this exhibition - click here.

Join us for our Artist Lecture Series featuring artists from the Emergence exhibition. Artists from the exhibition share their knowledge and experiences about what it takes to be an artist - their inspirations and the opportunities that led them to where they are today. Lectures are free and open to the public.*
