Heritage and History
Exhibition Dates: December 7, 2018 - January 17, 2019
An all media juried exhibit examining our heritage and history from individual and collective perspectives. Heritage is defined as “something that is handed down from the past: This can refer both to physical items or property, or something passed down such as a tradition. History on the other hand, is more a record or study of the events that have occurred in the past. Both can tell a story, but often from a different perspective. Being in a historical area, we are surrounded by the physical attributes that make up the heritage of St. Charles, which also engage us in the history of the area. With so many ways to explore, we ask artists to examine either their own personal relationships to these topics as they relate to their sense of self, or to explore the heritage or history of our area.
