WIU Art Labeling Project Almost Complete
Retired Western Illinois University professor Gil Belles is patiently waiting for the completion of his campus art labeling project.
The idea is to give credit where credit is due. Many sculptures on campus did not identify the artist, so Belles spent the past year working to fix that.
He did his research on the sculptures that needed a label. Now it is a matter of making the plaques that will recognize the artists.
"The provost office found some loose change to support the purchase of the plaques," Belles said.
"I still have some optimism that they might actually put on the pieces before the summer ends."
