2019 MFA Thesis Exhibitions

The School of Art and Design at SIU is proud to present 2019 MFA Thesis Exhibitions at the Surplus Gallery at the Glove Factory and the University Museum. These exhibitions showcase the culminating work of seven artists who will graduate this May. These graduating students have had exposure to extensive studio worktime, visiting artists, faculty mentoring, workshops, conferences, and focused creative research. The combination of these experiences has broadened their innovative perspectives and shaped their responsibilities as artists. Exhibitions are free and open to the public. Dates & locations for exhibiting artists and shows are listed below.

Black History Month 2019

Black History Month 2019 Flyer Click to view flyer as PDF

Black History Month is an annual observance in February, celebrating the past and present achievements of African Americans.

In February 1926, Dr. Carter G. Woodson, founder of the Association for the Study of African American Life and History, proposed the establishment of "Negro History Week" to honor the history and contributions of African Americans to American life. Dr. Woodson, known as the "Father of Black History", chose the second week of February because it commemorates the birthdays of two men who greatly affected the African American community: Abraham Lincoln (February 12) and Frederick Douglass (February 14). Negro History Week became Black History Week in the early 1970's. In 1976, the week-long observance was expanded to a month in honor of the nation's bicentennial.

This year's theme for Black History Month is "Black Migrations."

2018 EVENTS

Art Over Easy

Art Over Easy, the annual art auction and show hosted by Southern Illinois University Carbondale’s School of Art and Design, is back for the 14th year with new and exciting features for all local art lovers.

The fundraising event is set for 7-10 p.m. on Dec. 7 at the Surplus Gallery, the main gallery in the Glove Factory. A unique display of art from local artists, talented faculty and graduate students will transform the gallery, while live music and refreshments will make the evening a fun event. 

Reception, music and auctions

This year, Art Over Easy will include several new elements to compliment the traditional components of the popular event. A special VIP reception, beginning at 7 p.m. will provide access to an exclusive artist reception with the faculty and artists who contributed to the event. 

The event will also feature jazz music by Isaac Lausell, of the SIU Music program, along with hors d’oeuvres from local vendors and wine from local wineries. Original artwork from faculty, students and community members will be part of the silent auction, while the live auction will provide opportunities for participants to bid on art, and scholarships.
