The NIU Art Museum’s latest exhibition, "Local Visions," features items plucked from the homes of area collectors.
Peter Olson is the assistant director of the museum, and one of the curators for the show. He says a couple of years ago, he was thinking of possible themes for an exhibition.
“I’m an artist and my house is full of artwork that I love, and I know a lot of other people who are artists and who have a lot of artwork themselves that inspires them . And that seemed like a great idea for an exhibition.”
