Eureka College art professor Rhea Edge has work displayed in an exhibit at the McLean County Arts Center, 601 N. East St., Bloomington. A clip from one of her videos and one of her new paintings, both from her recent sabbatical work in Cuba and Trinidad, are included in the exhibit.
The show titled “Ecovisions” runs through October 25. It includes works by more than 60 artists who, like Rhea, support environmental themes.
“The exhibition focuses on the local and global environmental issues we are facing today,” Rhea said. “The works highlight the problems surrounding our resources, land, water, air, animal or plant life, the solutions we bring to fruition or the unattainable utopian ideal. The exhibition aims to illustrate varied and complex perspectives of our Earth’s endurance.”
Please plan to visit the exhibit to support Professor Edge and learn more about her recent work.

Faculty/Staff First-Year Seminar panel discussion
On Wednesday, November 12, from 12–12:50, Jessica Barr be leading a panel discussion for First-Year Seminar students entitled, “Is Studying Abroad for Me?” The purpose of the panel is for faculty and staff who spent some time abroad while they were in college to discuss their experiences—and, most importantly, how these experiences affected their personal and professional lives.
This panel is seen as a complement to the Summer Experience Symposium, which is an opportunity for students to share their recent experiences. The faculty/staff panel will show students how these undergraduate experiences can have a powerful impact on them even decades later.
If you would be interested in serving on this panel, please contact Jessica Barr.
