Faculty member Michael K. Paxton, who has taught at Columbia College Chicago for over 17 years in the Art and Art History Department and in the Design Department, will be exhibiting a new large-scale work “Interpolations” at the Evanston Art Center main floor gallery. The exhibition will open February 27, 2021 and run through April 4, 2021.

A virtual Artist Talk will take place March 4, 2021 from 5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. in support of this new work. This exhibition will mark Paxton’s third major one-person museum scale exhibition of new work in four years and will also mark his 40th anniversary of showing in Chicago. This project is partially funded by a grant from Columbia College Chicago, the Illinois Arts Council, and the EAC general membership.

These events are free and open to the public. Tickets for the opening reception and information on the exhibit can be found here. To sign up for the Artist Talk event, click here.
