WSIU InFocus Segment Archives
Noted regional artist Roscoe Misselhorn (1902-1997) was famous for his pencil drawings of historical sites, steam engines, riverboats, and other iconic images of 20th century midwestern life. But you might be surprised to learn that Misselhorn also experimented with impressionism and abstract expressionism. At the Misselhorn Art Gallery in Sparta, Illinois, Terry Waldron of the Misselhorn Art Foundation leads WSIU's Jak Tichenor on a tour of some of Misselhorn's more daring works, including a series of nudes and abstract art images created over 50 years ago. Note: This segment features artwork that may be unsuitable for children.
