April 2017 Temporary Art Exhibits
Each month, the South Suburban Public Art Committee selects three local artists to display their work at three recreation centers and selects one artist quarterly for an exhibit at the Lone Tree Golf Course & Hotel. Art displays at these facilities are intended to support and promote South Suburban’s mission to enrich the lives of all its residents and encourage a legacy of art to be enjoyed and appreciated.
These temporary art exhibits are also a chance to showcase local artists. The artists exhibiting in April are:
