Tim Waldrop is a living example of the old saying, “Ask, and you shall receive.”

The Western Illinois University associate professor of art recently asked for, and received, a substantial donation (more than $3,100) of glitter and glitter-related craft materials from Martha Stewart Crafts.

The sparkling decorations are being used by students and faculty to create their one-of-a-kind artwork for display in the next University Art Gallery show, “Exploring Media: Glitter,” which will run from Tuesday, Feb. 23 through Thursday, March 11.

A kickoff reception, open free to the public, will be held from 6-8 p.m. Feb. 23 at the Art Gallery.

A Performing Arts Society Academic Support Program grant will partially fund a visiting glitter artist.
