Concordia University Chicago Hosts Art Exhibit for Women’s History Month


Concordia University Chicago invites the public to celebrate Women’s History Month through a unique photography exhibit by local artist Lynn Hill. This free exhibit of Hills’ travels, titled “Traveler: A Sabbatical Exhibition,” is open February 17 through March 13, at the University’s Ferguson Art Gallery. The exhibit is an eclectic blend of digital photography and mixed-media collages including ink, paint, wire and found objects.

Hill, Professor of Art and Chair of the Department of Art at Elmhurst College in Elmhurst, IL, will display images from her 2013 trips to Gujarat, India, Oxford, England and South Africa, including images of schoolchildren in a Cape Town township, women in the Kutch villages of Khari and Khavda and the imaginative sensibility of Oxford. Hill will also host an artist’s reception on Sunday, February 23 from 2 to 4 p.m. in the gallery.

The Ferguson Art Gallery is located in Kretzmann Hall at Concordia University Chicago, 7400 Augusta St., River Forest. Gallery hours are Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 7 p.m., and Saturday and Sunday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. For more information, call 708-209-3013 or visit the Ferguson Art Gallery online.
