Native American Art Gallery

Native American artists from all over the United States participated in this Pop-Up Art Gallery.  Our thanks to Meg Bero, Executive Director of the Schingoethe Center of Aurora University for assisting us in contacting Native American artists.

The Pop-Up Art Gallery opened at 228 West Main Street on May 1st and ran through the month.  The exhibit was partially supported by a grant from the Illinois Arts Council (a state agency) and was a cooperative venture with the Public Art Committee of the Downtown St. Charles Partnership.
