The Inland See: Contemporary Art Around Lake Michigan
James Yood, Curator
September 6 – October 6, 2007

The four states that border Lake Michigan; Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, and Wisconsin -all have large populations of artists, superb cultural and academic institutions, etc., and yet the history of Midwestern Art is largely un- or misarticulated. The Inland See argues for the significance of place as an element helping to construct the vision of many artists living in this region. The Inland See defines the special nature of contemporary Midwestern Art, distinct, say, from the art produced on the East or West coasts of America.
