Top of the Morning, June 30, 2018

I found myself in the Springer Cultural Center in Champaign to pick something up this week.

I've walked through the hallways before and enjoyed the artwork that's strewn throughout the main floor of the building.

Many times, it's artwork from children, which is always fun to look at.

But Wednesday's trip was different.

Why?

Art gallery exhibit reflects Illinois' diversity

CHAMPAIGN — Illinois, at almost 200 years old, is a state as diverse as its artwork.

Showcasing that diversity will be Illinois at 200, a juried exhibition of nearly 50 pieces at Parkland College's Giertz Gallery, said gallery director Lisa Costello. The show opens today and runs through Aug. 8.
