The public is also invited to an opening reception on September 2nd and gallery talks on September 8th and September 17th.

In partnership with Ivy Tech Community College and the Center for Lifelong Learning.

Items generously on loan from the collections of Gail Hale, Suzanne Halvorson, William Itter, Barbara Livesey, Harold Mailand, George Malacinski and Sarah Noggle.
