New Sculpture Professor Having Exciting Summer
We are pleased to announce that sculptor Michael Rea will join the faculty of the NIU School of Art this fall. Michael holds degrees from NIU and the University of Wisconsin - Madison, and has been at Northwestern University for several years prior to his appointment here at NIU.
Michael's work has been receiving great notice this summer. From May 4 to June 16 his work was part of an exhibition in Omaha, Nebraska, entitled "Material Matters," at the Peerless Art Gallery. From May 16 through the end of September his work is on display at the Kunstmuseum in Thurgau, Switzerland. And, Michael and his work are featured in the May online issue of Cool Entrepreneurs - where you will find several terrific photos of his work.
Now, Michael's work is part of the exhibition entitled "Odie Off" at the Three Walls gallery which is located at 119 North Peoria, #2c, in Chicago and which runs through August 4.
