Elmhurst Art Museum to Feature Paul Erschen’s Work

April 9, 2019 | Joliet, Ill.

The work of University of St. Francis (USF) art and design department chairperson and associate professor of visual art Paul Erschen will be included in the Elmhurst Art Museum’s “With a Capital P” exhibit that will be open from May 11 through August 25, 2019. The exhibit will include Erschen’s works, “Rust Belt Solids,” along with works from over 30 other artists.

According to a press release by the Elmhurst Art Museum, the exhibit is the result of a group effort by six area artists.

“Curated by six distinguished local painters Leslie Baum, Magalie Guérin, José Lerma, Nancy Mladenoff, Suellen Rocca, and Kay Rosen, the group exhibition consists of six rooms, each using different criteria to interpret artistic approaches and a wide-ranging conversation about process and media by artists based in the Midwest and beyond,” the release stated.

Erschen, who teaches studio courses in painting, printmaking and sculpture, as well as some seminars, has been with USF since 2001.

The museum has planned several related programs to supplement to the exhibit, including a panel discussion on May 11 at 1:30 p.m., a director’s tour on May 18 at 1:30 p.m. and an exhibition tour on August 24 at 1:30 p.m.
