To celebrate University Galleries’ 50th anniversary, the first exhibition of the 2023-2024 academic year features selected works from the permanent collection. These prints, sculptures, textiles, photographs, paintings, drawings, and a film demonstrate University Galleries’ commitment to supporting students, alumni, and exhibiting artists through acquisitions, exhibitions, programming, partnerships, and publications. The exhibition labels not only feature information about each of the artworks on view, but also stories about each artist’s history with University Galleries.

The exhibition title is excerpted from the title of a lithograph made by artist Bethany Collins at Normal Editions Workshop in conjunction with her solo exhibition at University Galleries; the collaborative project was one of many partnerships between the two university units. All Hearts Beneath the Sun, a phrase quoted by Collins from a poem by Oliver Wendell Holmes Sr., serves as the exhibition title to acknowledge both a sense of community surrounding University Galleries’ exhibitions and the passage of time indicated by an anniversary.

All Hearts Beneath the Sun is the focus of multiple programs. Dianna Frid and Japheth Asiedu-Kwarteng will give public artist lectures and meet with students. University Galleries’ staff will lead art-making workshops for ISU students, families, K-12 students, and community members. Augmented reality experiences, sensory-friendly hours, stroller tours, and scavenger hunts are available. Free virtual and in-person curator-led tours are available by appointment.

All Hearts Beneath the Sun is organized by Kendra Paitz, University Galleries’ director and chief curator. Dianna Frid’s lecture is supported by University Galleries’ grant from the Alice and Fannie Fell Trust. Japheth Asiedu-Kwarteng’s lecture is supported by the Harold K. Sage Foundation, Illinois State University Foundation Fund, and Students’ Independent League in Ceramic Arts (SILICA). Workshops and field trips are supported by the Lori Baum and Aaron Henkelman University Galleries Community Fund.
