Welcome to the Southern Illinois Art and Artisans Center
The Southern Illinois Art Gallery is the primary exhibition space of the Illinois State Museum (ISM) in southern Illinois and is located in the same facility with the Southern Illinois Artisans Shop.
ISM's Southern Illinois Art Gallery offers visitors the opportunity to view changing exhibitions of the work of Illinois artists, past and present. Exhibitions also bring treasures from the fine art, decorative art, and ethnographic collections of the Illinois State Museum to southern Illinois. Changing exhibitions are organized by the curatorial staff of the ISM Art Section.
The Southern Illinois Art Gallery serves as a point of origin for programs that promote southern Illinois artists to a statewide audience through exhibitions and educational programs that travel throughout the Illinois State Museum System.
