Faculty Art Exhibition on Display at Harper College
Byline: Submitted by Harper College
Harper College Art Professor Jason Peot likes to create art that is site-specific -- that is, art that interacts with the space in which it is created and displayed.
For this year's Faculty Art Exhibition, he's taken that a step further and has created a piece that isn't just being displayed at Harper -- it's actually about Harper, too.
Peot, who teaches Sculpture and Design at the college, is showing a piece he created this summer that was inspired by Harper; a two-dimensional drawing overlaid with elements of sandblasted plexiglass that incorporates Harper's campus map.
Fourteen full-time and adjunct art faculty at the Harper College are exhibiting their work in the biannual Faculty Art Exhibition, on display now in the Art Exhibition Space, C200, Building C on the college's main campus, 1200 W. Algonquin Road in Palatine. The free exhibit is open to the public Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and will close on Thursday, Sept. 26.
The exhibit features photography, sculpture, print pieces and more -- all forms that represent the kinds of classes offered at the college. …
