Experience the 21st century through Indiana State art exhibit

TERRE HAUTE — Contemplate the joys and challenges of our time through the University Art Gallery’s exhibit, “Collecting in the 21st Century: Recent Acquisitions, 2001-2013” on display through Sept. 20 on the Indiana State University campus.

The exhibition includes works by internationally renowned artists such as Andy Warhol, James Rosenquist, Robert and Shana ParkeHarrison, Claes Oldenburg, Robert Motherwell, Jeff Koons and many others. Many of the works are on display for the first time.

A new hire/closing reception, sponsored by Interdisciplinary Programs and ISU’s quality of life initiative, is scheduled for 4-6 p.m. Sept. 18. The exhibition and reception are free and open to the public.

From the dejected spirit of the Great Depression (“Union Square” by Reginald Marsh) and America’s response to 9/11 (“Monument to a Standing New Yorker” by Tony Fitzpatrick), to the current immigration debates (“Aquellos Polvos” by Enrique Chagoya), numerous works explore societal issues of the 20th and 21st centuries. Nicholas Kahn and Richard Selesnick’s “Truppe Fledermaus (Bat Troupe)” photographs create a fantastical mood in order to poetically address issues related to the ecosystem.

Works in this multi-media exhibition of paintings, prints, photographs, drawings and sculpture date from 1933 to 2012. A selection of six paintings and prints, purchased from the Swope Art Museum’s annual Wabash Valley Juried Exhibition, highlights Indiana State’s collection of local and area artists. The university began purchasing works from the Wabash Valley exhibition in 1948.

The University Art Gallery is located in the Landini Center for Performing and Fine Arts at the corner of Seventh and Chestnut streets. Gallery hours are 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday and 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Thursday. The gallery will also be open from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sept. 14 in conjunction with ISU Family Day.

Free group tours are available upon request. For more information, contact Grace Pringle at 812-237-3720.
