Each month, the South Suburban Public Art Committee selects local artists to display their work at South Suburban recreation centers and selects one artist quarterly for an exhibit at the Lone Tree Golf Club & Hotel. Art displays at these facilities are intended to support and promote South Suburban’s mission to enrich the lives of all its residents and encourage a legacy of art to be enjoyed and appreciated. Most of the displays are available for public viewing Dec. 3-28.
