Two sculptures from the Great ARTdoors Program 2020 are now on view in the front lobby of the Spurlock Museum. The pieces, Kinsey Fitzgerald’s Mother and Child and Ja Nelle Davenport-Pleasure’s Seeds of Injustice, were commissioned by the Great ARTdoors Program in 2020, as part of a collaboration between the Spurlock Museum, 40North, Urbana Arts and Culture, Urbana Park District, and Champaign Park District. The initiative was created to help fund C-U area artists during the pandemic, and to provide solace and community during a difficult year. It was named by the arts and culture magazine, Smile Politely, as the Best New Art Programming of 2020. The Great ARTdoors program will be back this year from May 2021 to October 2021.
