Welcome to ISM-Lockport Gallery

PUBLIC NOTICE

In response to Illinois’ Tier 3 resurgence mitigations, the Illinois State Museum System will temporarily close our flagship facility and Research and Collections Center in Springfield, the Dickson Mounds Museum in Lewistown, and the Lockport Gallery effective Friday, November 20, 2020. All locations will remain closed until further notice.

This decision is the best course of action to ensure the safety of our patrons and dedicated staff. We will continue to offer virtual opportunities so you can experience all the Museum has to offer from the safety of your home.

The Lockport Gallery features changing exhibitions of art created by past and contemporary Illinois artists and artisans. Paintings, drawings, sculptures, quilts, and other decorative and ethnographic arts are showcased in rotating, theme-based exhibitions augmented by interpretive materials. The exhibitions are given an added dimension through educational events, group tours, and outreach activities for both children and adults.
