Description: 
Luminous Ground refers to the collective insight of eleven Illinois artists who, through the decades, have created bodies of work that reflect their ever-present and vital creativity. "Luminous Ground: Artists With Histories" exhibition artists were chosen as exemplars of older individuals—these artists range from 78 to over 90 years old—who have remained vital and productive into advanced age, suggesting that creativity is a way of partaking of a "fountain of youth."
