Art exhibit examines 'Vice + Virtue'
DeKALB – The Northern Illinois University Art Museum presents “Vice + Virtue,” an exhibition curated by NIU Art Museum Assistant Director Peter Olson exploring the dynamics of the “deadly sins” and “heavenly virtues” with juxtaposed interpretations from an array of visual artists.
This exhibition will be held in all four galleries of the NIU Art Museum from Jan. 8 to Feb. 23, with a public reception from 4:30 to 6 p.m. on Jan. 24.
This exhibition examines the concepts of virtue and vice as they have been depicted throughout the evolution of visual culture. Showcasing artwork from more than 45 artists, “Vice + Virtue” will present an eclectic mix spanning highly-detailed engravings from old-master printmakers to lusciously-vivid compositions by contemporary painters. A selection of folk art will also be included, along with an assortment of pop culture memorabilia. From the gravely-earnest to the playfully-witty, “Vice + Virtue” delivers a thought-provoking overview of innocence and sin, including ambiguous areas of overlap or intersection.
