The Indiana State University Permanent Art Collection Retrospective Exhibition will be on display in the University Art Gallery Oct. 20-Nov. 3. The exhibition, hosted by the department of art and the University Art Gallery at Indiana State, will feature artwork from ISU's Permanent Art Collection.

A public reception will be held Oct. 21 from 5 - 7 p.m. All receptions are free and open to the public.

This retrospective exhibit will feature artwork from Albrecht Durer, Andy Warhol, Christo, Diego Rivera, Ida Kohlmeyer, James Rosenquist, Jim Dine, Larry Rivers, Leonard Baskin, Pablo Picasso, Rene Magritte, Sue Coe and Willis Bing Davis.

"By having the ISU Permanent Art Collection Retrospective Exhibition, the community at Indiana State University, as well as the surrounding communities, has a unique opportunity to view the celebrated artwork in a gallery setting," said Crystal Vicars-Pugh, interim director of the University Art Gallery. "As with every exhibition at the University Art Gallery, this exhibition is a great way to educate, enrich and encourage artistic dialogue with people who come in contact with these amazing works of art."

The University Art Gallery is located on the corner of Seventh and Chestnut streets in the Center for Performing and Fine Arts. Gallery hours are from 11 a.m.-4 p.m. Monday through Friday and 11 a.m.-7 p.m. on Thursdays.

The University Art Gallery at Indiana State University hosts exhibitions, visiting artists and scholars throughout the academic year. Calendars are available at the gallery's front desk. The gallery's mission to expose cutting edge contemporary art to ISU and Terre Haute would not be possible without the generous support of Arts Illiana, Indiana Arts Commission, College of Arts and Sciences and the department of art.
