The exhibit is in the Christopher Art Gallery on the main PSC campus, 202 South Halsted St. in Chicago Heights. PSC also will host an Artists’ Reception, from 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Jan. 17, that is free and open to the public.

All the artists have created works that convey alternative interpretations of memory. The works are varied in their mood, concept, visual styles and intention.

“This exhibit has work from artists whose varied takes on the idea of memory elicit so many aspects: childhood memories, nostalgia, longing, mystery, and the joy of beauty. Visitors will enjoy the wide range of media, ideas and cultural aspects of memory, that union of head and heart that we all share,” said Gallery Director Beth Shadur.


To schedule a guided tour of the exhibit and future exhibits at PSC, call Shadur at 708-709-7738 or email [email protected].

The gallery is free and open to the public Monday through Thursday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., except for days the college is closed.
