May 25 - August 7, 1993
Throughout the summer of 1993 University Galleries of Illinois State University will be featuring selections from the former University Museum's collection of International Child Art. The collection which contains over 8,000 items has been exhibited both nationally and internationally over the past 20 years through the efforts of curator, Dr. Barry Moore, who recently retired from the Art Department at Illinois State University. The pictures in this collection have provided art educators with a vital source of research materials and have been published extensively. All of the images in the exhibition were created by children from around the world who were untrained in the arts. The expressive strength of the work testifies to the existence of an inherent human capacity to create meaningful visual representations of the world and our place within it.
