Natural History, University
To leave home and start a new life in an unfamiliar place is at the core of the immigrant experience. For the artist, there is much to process—new cultures, colors, forms, sensations, and environments, all different from those left behind. New roots form atop old ones, and the past never strays far from reach. Since the beginning of the 20th century, more than five
million Ukrainians have emigrated from their homes in Ukraine, Poland, and Russia to settle abroad.

University Galleries of Illinois State University has developed a multivalent approach to exhibitions and support for artists. Our program comprises rings of access that extend outward from the exhibitions we create and travel, the books we publish, and the tours, performances, lectures, and outreach programs we provide. Our exhibitions feature both emerging and established artists, often those whose work has not been previously presented in a comprehensive manner.
The University Museum offers over 30 exhibitions each year in the arts, humanities and sciences.
