Illinois Arts Council Agency Logo: "Hybrid Muse"

The Illinois Arts Council Agency logo is a stylized version of a cast bronze sculpture, "Hybrid Muse," (left) created by Illinois' renowned artist Richard Hunt. The work was commissioned in 1985 by the Illinois Arts Council Foundation to honor the 20th anniversaries of the Illinois Arts Council and the National Endowment for the Arts. The "Hybrid Muse" sculpture is given to recipients of the Governor's Awards for the Arts.
