We are pleased to introduce Chicagoland collage artist Kyle Van Heck as the next to be featured in our ongoing exhibition series Local Art @ EPL. Throughout January, ten of his thought-provoking works will be on display on the 2nd floor of EPL’s Main Library. Created using oils, spray paint, old books, electrical wire, children’s toys, and old newspaper culled from EPL’s recycling bin, his stunning collages shape “small pieces of pop culture” into unified works with something to say. You can learn more about Mr. Van Heck’s artwork by visiting his website, and make sure to check back with Off the Shelf later in the month for an interview with the artist himself. Stay tuned.
