Parkland College > Fine & Applied Arts > Giertz Gallery > Lectures



Giertz Gallery’s mission is to serve the educational needs of its diverse audience. Therefore, an artist’s lecture is paired with every exhibition when possible. An artist, curator, or faculty member provides afternoon lectures that informs the artwork in the gallery, such as how the artwork is made or selected, issues that interest the artist, and an artist’s experiences in education and art practice. An additional lecture is always provided at 7:00pm during an exhibition’s opening reception. These lectures are free and open to the public.

  • Preservation and Conservation Approaches for Historic Paper and Photograph Collections talk with Jennifer Hain Tepper, Preservation Librarian and Associate Professor, University Library from UIUC

Summer Hours:

  • Monday through Thursday, 10 a.m.–6 p.m.

To find the gallery when classes are in session, we suggest using the M6 parking lot on the north corner of the campus. Enter through any door and follow the ramps uphill to the highest point of the first floor, where the gallery is located. The gallery windows overlook the outdoor fountain area.

This program is partially supported by a grant from the Illinois Arts Council, a state agency. Parkland is a section 504/ADA-compliant institution. For accommodation, call 217/351-2505.
