SOUTH HOLLAND | The Art & Design Department of South Suburban College presents an exhibition by Quentin Crockett celebrating African American Heritage Month on the college’s main campus at 15800 S. State St.

Where Did All The Heroes Go is an exhibition of oil paintings “reflecting on the essential necessary continued struggle of the black male in the new millennia to become everyday heroes leading their communities, families and humanity in the face of urban violence, class stereotypes and racial profiling,” says Crockett.

Crockett is a native of the South Side of Chicago, veteran, businessman, and graduate of both South Suburban College and Governors State University. The exhibit will be on display in the Dorothea Thiel Gallery through Monday with an artist reception at 12:30 p.m. today.

The public is welcome to visit art exhibitions and receptions at no charge. The Thiel Gallery is on the fourth floor in the Art & Design hallway and is open from 9 a.m. to 6p.m. Monday through Thursday and from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Fridays. The galleries are closed on weekends and holidays.

Call (708) 596-2000, ext. 2445 for more information.
