CHICAGO HEIGHTS | The Prairie State College board of trustees recently added two student art works to the Student Art Collection. The pieces were chosen from the May 2013 Graduating Student exhibit.
The pieces selected were “Ibex,” a sculpture by Drew Young, of Park Forest, and “Passage,” a photograph by Taylor Augustson, of Lowell.
Established in September 2008 by the board of trustees, the collection features student artwork, and is exhibited in prominent places throughout campus. The collection now includes 21 pieces of art.
Art Professor Paul Rinaldi said, "We are very proud of the high level work our students are creating here at PSC. The new sculpture and photograph are a testament to these students' creativity and personal vision.”
“The board of trustees collection provides a wonderful opportunity for the college to collect and display such powerful works, contributing in a major way to the cultural presence in our community,” he added.
