Two exhibits @ Hite Art Institute

Through Aug. 11

Hite Art Institute, Schneider Hall Galleries
U of L’s Belknap Campus • 852-4483

U of L’s Hite Art Institute isn’t taking the summer off. Instead, they decided to display two exhibitions in the same location. “Art of the State” is the result of a college seminar on government-sanctioned art. A student viewing of Soviet-era work led to questions on how the state and an artist can work together. The result is a show of student “answers” by way of prints, posters and photography. An artist’s life’s work is showcased in “Jim Snodgrass: A Creative Life.” Snodgrass was born in 1929 in Jeffersonville. After receiving his BFA from the Herron Art Institute in Indianapolis, he worked as a painter and sculptor in New York City, Indianapolis and Louisville. The reception for both shows is Thursday from 5-7 p.m. —Jo Anne Triplett
