Inland Visual Studies Center at Bradley Welcomes Midwest Art Symposium

July 1, 2010

Artists and scholars from key academic institutions in the Midwest will convene in Peoria April 15, 16 and 17 for the first public event sponsored by the new Inland Visual Studies Center located at Bradley University. The three-day symposium will explore the Midwest's contributions in art and scholarship that often are overpowered by dominant "coastal" voices in the American dialogue. Like the Inland Visual Studies Center, the symposium is designed to analyze the Midwest's contributions to national and global art, a contribution not fully recognized or understood.
