On February 11, ICI hosted the opening reception for the work of student artists (pictured here) from Minnesota Life College featured in the latest exhibit of the Institute's Changing Landscapes arts initiative.

Last spring, members of ICI's Changing Landscapes Arts committee visited Minnesota Life College (MLC), a postsecondary life-skills training program for young adults with learning disabilities, to explore exhibiting MLC artwork in Pattee Hall, where ICI is based. Committee members loved what they saw, and MLC students began preparing for the show by spending extra time at art museums and centers learning new artistic techniques. "Preparing for the show has been highly impactful on MLC students," said MLC art instructor Erin Boe. "They were required to exhibit high levels of professionalism and artistry."

The prints, dioramas, drawings, and paintings are on display (many of them for sale) in Pattee Hall until April 2016. Building hours are 8 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.
