Artist of the Corridor: Art Exhibits in the City Building
Artist of the Corridor was created by the City of Urbana in March 2010 to feature artworks by local artists in the City Building at 400 S. Vine Street. This exhibition displays works by a featured artist or group of artists for a period of three months. A part of the Urbana Public Arts Program, this initiative works to create a city where all residents engage with the arts in its many forms and where artists thrive and are valued.
Current Exhibition (February 2 to May 1, 2015):
The City of Urbana invites the public to view the latest Artist of the Corridor exhibition featuring students from Wiley Elementary School. On February 13, photographs of the costume designs will be added to the display, and two weeks after that, the students will showcase their works in a fashion show at the City building!
Wiley Elementary Fashion Show will be on February 27, 2015 from 5:30pm-6:30pm at the City of Urbana Building. Join us for an free evening of art, food and fun.
Previous Artists of the Corridor include:
Jason Patterson, Steve Kostell, Urbana's Market at the Square, William Lawrence Deverell, Urbana Land Arts, Judy Jones, Wiley Elementary Students, Rosalind Faiman Weinberg, Will Arnold, Bonnie Switzer, Kathryn Fitzgerald, Cheri Manrique, Hua Nian, Phil Strang, Michael Fuerst, Betsem Atiback Benjamin, Lyosha, Meredith Foster and Sandra Batzli, and Carol Farnum.
