Gilah Yelin Hirsch, professor of art, will show her piece “Choice” in the “Visions of Elysium” exhibition at the Inland Empire Museum of Art. The exhibit’s opening is Nov. 11, 2 to 5 p.m., and it runs from Nov. 11 to Dec. 23, 2018. Hirsch will participate in an artist panel on Nov. 17. The works exhibited in “Visions of Elysium” are “rooted in personal desires and beliefs and realized through a number of different mediums, present worlds of ethereal beauty, poignant images of longing and hope, fanciful abstractions and landscapes both inviting and foreboding, and, on occasion, an offering created through an audacious sense of humor.”
