An ongoing exhibition of SAIC student work opens December 16 in the main lobby of the historic Palmer House Hilton Hotel, 17 East Monroe Street. Thirteen students in the class Palmer House: Honoré's Gift, led by SAIC faculty member Lewis Kostiner, will present photography, design, and architecture projects across media in a periodically rotating show. Inspired by complete access to the hotel, including areas generally off limits to guests, each student is working on a particular aspect of the hotel that has piqued his or her interest.
Artists include Alex Zhang, Alysha Scott, Anna Wolak, Austin Fuller, Ben Pegram, Daniel Dietzel, Elaine Li, Elliott Franklin, Eric Rowan, Julia Lachman, Kelly Morrison, Mary Clemens, and Sunwha Her. (source)
