5.12 Art Acquisition and Placement

adopted: Aug-1997
last revised: May-2009

The College recognizes that the display of works of art provides both aesthetic and educational benefits to the District, whether the works are part of the College’s permanent collection or are intended for temporary display.

Though the College’s collections and display primarily provide educational support material and promote the development of artistic talent and aesthetic awareness, the permanent collection should strive to represent Illinois art contemporary with the College buildings. Acceptance and display of art must fall within the stated mission of the College.
