McHenry County College (MCC) and the McHenry County State’s Attorney's Office have partnered to launch "Art For Justice," a newly-formed art loan program featuring MCC student artwork.
MCC students are lending their work on a rotating basis to be displayed for a period of approximately four months with pieces chosen by State’s Attorney Patrick Kenneally and Lisa Ryan, administrative Manager in the State’s Attorney's Office. For the inaugural installation, currently on display, Kenneally and Ryan chose pieces that were exhibited at the college's Satellite Gallery in the Old Courthouse Arts Center, located in Woodstock. The artwork is displayed throughout the entire office, including the law library, conference room and reception area.
"We have received so many positive remarks since we started this program," Ryan said. "Our employees and visitors love the artwork and comment on it frequently."
The first exhibit features artwork by current and former students: Skylar Buetow, Haley Creager, Dominique Sanders and Gloria Stewart, all of Crystal Lake, and Cristina Lichay of Huntley. The artwork can be viewed on the McHenry County State's Attorney's Facebook page.
