CCA is thrilled to host the exhibition Balance by Southern Illinois artist Eldon Benz through August 31 at Artspace 304. This exhibit presents sculptures and photography that combine art with Benz’s computer knowledge and technical skills. He describes his work as “Fun – Whimsy – Process.”
Eldon Benz grew up in Peoria, Illinois. He received a BA in Art, focusing on sculpture and printmaking, from Southern Illinois University at Carbondale in 1974. Benz remained in Southern Illinois after graduating. He is currently the Vice President and Software Engineer for DxR Development Group. Benz has exhibited his artwork across the Midwest, including at the Saint Louis Artists’ Guild, in Biennial Southern Illinois at Cedarhurst Center for the Arts in Mt.Vernon, and at the Art Institute of Chicago.
