Art Gallery

Front of Art GalleryThe Kishwaukee College Art Gallery strives to supplement and enrich the educational needs and interests of our community. Through its programs of exhibitions, the gallery will promote the visual arts and encourage a diversity of educational non-art displays. Art exhibits will illustrate both traditional and innovative work by both recognized and emerging artists. Alternative displays may relate to regional history, anthropology, science, technology, sociology and agriculture to name a few. Personal collections of interest might also be a source for exhibition.
