Current Exhibition

The Visual Arts Gallery at the University of Illinois Springfield (UIS) is proud to present “Hindsight 20/20”, an exhibition showcasing the creativity and skill sets of the senior Visual Arts majors at UIS. As a result of public health concerns, and in keeping with UIS policies in place to protect our students, faculty, staff, and patrons, this special exhibition will take place online. The virtual exhibition will launch on April 30th.  An exhibition catalog will complement the exhibition and will be available as a free, downloadable PDF on the website.

Once launched, the exhibition can be found at the following link: https://hindsight-2020.weebly.com

“Hindsight 20/20” features works by UIS Visual Arts graduating seniors that explore how visual language can more clearly express those experiences that are difficult to communicate through words alone. Exhibiting artists include Logan Baskett, Kelsey Cleary, Kailee Harris, Rachel Lewis, Dominic Miraldi, and Merrick Wilderman. This exhibition will feature animation, digital media, painting, screen printing, and sculpture.

Each of the student artists have created works that collectively strive to transport the viewer, inviting individuals to immerse themselves and recognize not only how our surroundings affect our emotions, but also how individuals impact the environment and world around them. These works are especially poignant in light of recent global develops and the hardships many now face. Ultimately, “Hindsight 20/20” serves as a reflection and testament to the hard work of these students in the midst of these challenging times.

This program is partially supported by a grant from the Illinois Arts Council Agency.
