The glow of a candle, the rise of the Sun and the illumination of a lamp all bring comfort and warmth to our lives, but there is much more to light than meets the eye. Light is more the simply the illumination of a light bulb or the sun. Light is a key factor in the creation of a successful image. It takes on many forms, many which are largely invisible and undetectable without modern technology. Light allows us to communicate, entertain, explore and understand our world.
LIGHT: Beyond the Bulb illuminates the myriad of things light can do, and how it plays a critical role in our everyday lives. The exhibition draws from a collection images that originated from a call to the scientific community and to photographers for images which supported the 2015 International Year of Light. Our Evansville Visitors & Convention Bureau Center for History and Science display of Light: Beyond the Bulb includes beautiful images, engaging captions and interactive exhibits that convey some of the amazing things light can do.
Over 30 images are included in the display, each curated to illuminate a broad a range of the electromagnetic spectrum. A visit to the Light: Beyond the Bulb will reveal multidisciplinary connections with physics, optics, earth sciences, astrophysics and art and bring warmth to your soul as only light can during this the coldest of seasons.

The Evansville Museum is grateful to exhibition series sponsor M. Susan Hardwick for encouraging the multi-year celebrations of the talents of Skip Steinworth and the four future exhibitors. STILLNESS: DRAWINGS BY SKIP STEINWORTH, on exhibit in the Main Gallery through May 14, includes 31 drawings completed from 1997 – 2017. Steinworth’s artist residency is made possible by grants from the Martha & Merritt deJong Foundation and the Daus Family Foundation in memory of John J. Daus.
Skip Steinworth lives and works in Stillwater, Minnesota, an historic river town on the outskirts of the Twin Cities along the St. Croix River. His interest in art began at a very early age; by his teens he was selling work in local galleries. After earning their college degrees in the early 1970s, he and his wife taught art in Melbourne, Australia. They returned to Minnesota and both began careers as full-time studio artists. Steinworth works exclusively in pencil and his drawings are included in the permanent collections of the Minneapolis Art Institute, the Art Institute of Chicago, the Plains Museum in Moorhead, Minnesota, the University of North Dakota, and Arkansas Arts Center in Little Rock as well as in numerous private collections. He is represented by the Jenkin Johnson Galleries in San Francisco and New York and the MA Doran Gallery in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
