Art on the Square, Yoram Gal unveil 2016 poster

In its essence, Belleville’s Art on the Square is “a joyful celebration” to 64-year-old Yoram Gal, an Israeli painter. Gal, an internationally-known painter, was chosen to create this year’s Art on the Square poster. The poster was unveiled Wednesday night in the Schmidt Art Center on the campus of Southwestern Illinois College in front of about 150 people. The community-wide event is approaching its 15th anniversary.
