Christopher Art Gallery at Prairie State College

Christopher Art Gallery features eight exhibitions per year, featuring regional and national artists in five exhibitions, and works by students in three exhibitions. 

Each fall, a show highlights the portfolio of a PSC student designated as “Photographer of the Year.” Artists exhibited have included Dawoud Bey, Joseph Jachna, Terry Evans, Gladys Nilsson, Eleanor Spiess-Ferris, Nnenna Okore, Reginald Baylor and John Pitman Weber.

Opening reception times vary by exhibition. We also feature additional programming, such as  visiting artists, and other events, during our exhibitions. 

We host a yearly visiting artist to make a public presentation on his or her work. We are members of SAMBA, Southland Arts, Municipalities and Business Association, and participate in their festivals and events.
