Rusty Freeman is the Director of Visual Arts at Cedarhurst Center for the Arts in Mount Vernon, Illinois. Freeman came to Cedarhurst in August 2009 from Plains Art Museum in Fargo, North Dakota, where he curated more than 112 exhibitions. At Cedarhurst, Freeman oversees the operations of Collections, Exhibitions, and the Sculpture Park. Cedarhurst has grown into a cultural Mecca spread over 90 acres. The original two-room museum has expanded into a 33,000-square-foot cultural center with four galleries. The campus is also home to the Shrode Art Center, which includes a gallery, classrooms, and studio space, and the Goldman-Kuenz Sculpture Park, which boasts one of the finest outdoor contemporary sculpture collections in the U.S.
