Art Around You, a virtual exhibition tour and workshop co-presented with the Children’s Discovery Museum.

Participants (ages 7-10) can register for this free program at childrensdiscoverymuseum.net. This program is made possible by an Illinois Prairie Community Foundation—Mirza Arts and Culture grant awarded to the CDM.

University Galleries of Illinois State University is pleased to present Caroline Kent: What the stars can’t tell us from August 11 through December 16, 2021.

What the stars can’t tell us presents paintings and sculptures by Chicago-based artist and Illinois State University alumna (and former track athlete) Caroline Kent. This exhibition encompasses two galleries: one featuring large-scale paintings created from 2015 through 2021, and another premiering a site-responsive installation conceived in relationship to the artist’s simultaneous solo exhibition at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago. Derived from the title of one of Kent’s paintings, the exhibition title references humanity’s long-term reliance on the cosmos for navigation and timekeeping, while addressing how much of the universe remains invisible and unknown. It also alludes to the limitations that exist in conflict with our desire to know anything fully.

Installation view of Caroline Kent: What the stars can’t tell us, on view at University Galleries.
