The James S. Murray Gallery at Lincoln Land Community College now features a selection of East Asian art and artifacts from the Philip and Mary Kathryn Trutter Collection. The Murray Gallery is located on the second floor of Menard Hall on the LLCC campus. Gallery hours are Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. – 4 p.m., and the public is invited to visit at no charge.
The exhibit complements a course being co-taught this spring by English faculty members Paul Van Heuklom and Ashley Green entitled “Cultural Values of the Eastern World,” as well as the East Asian Film Series they organized last fall. The course focuses on the creative and intellectual milestones of the Far East, the same concepts on display in the Murray Gallery. The exhibit will run through March 31.
The entire collection of Philip and Mary Kathryn Trutter is permanently housed across campus in a museum and building named in their honor. More information on the Trutter Museum and its collection is available at www.LLCCFoundation.org/trutter-museum.
