UIS faculty part of Springfield Art Association exhibition

The latest exhibition at Springfield Art Association is the new work of University of Illinois Springfield faculty. An opening reception is Friday, April 4, from 5:30-8:30 p.m.

Featured faculty artists include Brytton Bjorngaard, Shane Harris, Tim Kowalczyk, Allison Lacher, Mike Miller, Michael Prault, Megan Rigoni-McCormic, Jeff Robinson and Clay Stalter.

The event is in conjunction with the DEMO Project Opening Reception of UIS Professor of Art Mike Miller’s “Please to See You” exhibit. What’s unusual about Miller’s presentation is his use of a drone to get video and re-create a simulated paparazzi response to Abraham Lincoln’s probable attendance at an onsite Edward’s Place event in 1857.

DEMO Project is located on the grounds of Springfield Art Association. Both exhibits are on display throughout April.
