Current Exhibition


The UIS Visual Arts Gallery presents Let The Words Fall Out, an interactive installation from Springfield graphic designer and artist Brytton Bjorngaard, UIS Assistant Professor of Visual Arts. Considering the question, how much of our communication is honest?, the work attempts to cut through some of the verbal and visual onslaught of today’s communication in which we often present the self not as we are, but as we want to be. The goal is not to be offensive, funny, or judgmental, although the work may do all those things, but to speak openly.

The exhibition will open on Monday, August 24 and run through Thursday, September 11. A reception for the exhibit will take place on Thursday, September 3 from 5:30 to 8:00 p.m. in the Visual Arts Gallery. This event is free and open to the public.

The Visual Arts Gallery is centrally located on the UIS campus in the Health and Science Building, Room 201. Gallery hours are Monday through Thursday 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.
