'Looking at Time' exhibit on display through June 23 "Looking at Time, " an exhibition of small fine art prints by Michael Florian Jilg, is on display in Gallery 110 of the Warren M. Lee Center for the Fine Arts at The University of South Dakota.
The show, an exhibition of small etchings and lithographs, will run through June 23. The artwork in this exhibition was completed between 1985 and 1992.
The earliest of the small prints started as handmade Christmas gifts and have evolved into a powerful variation of scale for the artist. The subject matter reflects Jilg's fascination with layers of civilization created and destroyed by the human animal.
