The Art of Louise Woodroofe

In our second-floor art gallery, we feature the works of local artist Louise Woodroofe.  Louise was an artist from early childhood who honed her skills as a teen and eventually as faculty at the University of Illinois.  Taught in the Flauvit style, her bold, colorful work was the perfect medium for painting her passion... circuses!  Learn about her personal friendship with circus owner Oliver Ringing North and her experiences and art under the big top.
