Armory Show's 100th Exhibit This Year

Southern Illinois University



100th Armory Show Celebrated

September 30, 2013

The Carbondale Community Arts celebrates the 100th anniversary of the 1913 Armory Show, which brought modernist art to the United States. Former College of Mass Communication and Media Arts Dean Gary Kolb has been heavily involved with this event, seeking to link Carbondale's arts community with Southern Illinois University. From Monday, October 7 through Friday, October 11, at both Noon and 5pm, there will be lectures and screening events led by folks from the Department of Cinema and Photography (Michele Leigh and Rob Spahr), as well as the Schools of Art and Design, Music, and Architecture. Please see the included poster for locations, but many of the events will be at CCA's exciting new 304 West Walnut St. location.
