A Place Called Home: Frank Lundahl and the Quad Cities

Nov. 19-Feb. 12, 2016
This exhibition focuses on the expansive collection of works by Frank Lundahl (1858-1932) owned by Augustana. Lundahl was born in Rock Island and spent his life in the Quad Cities. A painter of religious and secular commissions, he still found time to create his own work, capturing the life of the region through landscapes, genre scenes and still life.

Opening reception, 5 p.m. Nov. 20
