Southern Illinois University Edwardsville, Elizabeth's and my alma mater, generously stepped forward and allowed us to slot our show into their calendar in place of the annual faculty exhibition, after our original gallery cancelled our show. We are forever in their debt.
We installed our exhibit From the Inside Out at the gallery in August 2014 opening on the 18th with a reception on August 22, 2014.
This is the view from the gallery entrance.
Looking north west from the entrance you can see the alcoves we created with the moveable walls in the gallery.
In March 2013 SIUE officially opened the new Art & Design West Building during a ribbon cutting ceremony. The renovation and addition is its own work of art. The joining of the renovated existing building, built in 1991, and the new addition bring the studio arts together with art history, art education and art therapy under one roof for the first time. The new, LEED certified addition, includes an art gallery, 96-seat auditorium and lecture hall, and painting/drawing studios oriented to bring in northern light.

A large crowd of students, faculty, retired professors, alumni and people from the community attended the dedication ceremony which also included the opening of a beautiful exhibit of Cuban art donated to the University Museum.

For those of you who've never been to SIUE, this satellite map will help. The campus is huge--about 2600 acres, but the core of classroom and administration buildings are all located within Circle Drive which connects to University Drive which in turn connects to I-270 to the south. The core campus is surrounded on the south and west by several dormitories. Click on the map to enlarge and read the tips.
