Krannert Art Museum is proud to partner with 8 to Create, a Champaign-Urbana organization that coordinates an annual event in which eight artists publicly create an artwork over the course of eight hours.

This exhibition presents works of previous participating artists in anticipation of this year’s upcoming event on March 30 in the Link Gallery. At this event, community members have the unique opportunity to view the creative process, engage with the artists, and see the works take form.

Featured artists include:

Angelo Martinez, Deanne Wortman, Shelby Shadwell, Ghislaine Fremaux, Hong Chun Zhang, Jason Bentley, Allen Creamean, Rachel Newell, Elliott Stokes, Kira Schnitzler, EKAH, Emannuel Obadiah, Vivian Le, and Frank Vega.
