Inspired by Jim Dine, a contemporary American artist who created a series of drawings reinterpreting works of sculpture in the Glyptothek Museum in Munich, the display will recreate the ambience of a studio. With a series of prints by Dine as the backdrop, plaster casts originally used in studios will be displayed allowing visitors to draw inside the gallery. Artworks by visitors will be exhibited in the gallery in a salon-style display.

Local artists and art classes in the community are invited to come and draw in the gallery, which is located on the main floor of Stewart Center. Instructors are encouraged to schedule their class visits with the gallery staff.

Purdue Galleries will host a reception and open drawing session for “Living Stone” at 6 p.m., Sept. 11 at the Stewart Center Gallery.
