The Ella Elizabeth Hise Museum of Regional Art was made possible by a generous gift from retired Air Force Col. William C. Hise and his brother, the late Air Force Brig. Gen. James C. Hise, who wished to honor their late sister Ella Elizabeth Hise, who was a pioneer in art education in Illinois and began her career in Harrisburg Public School. The Museum, located on the south side of the museum, contains three spacious galleries, as well as a beautiful front entrance foyer, classroom/reception area and professional workspace. The mission of the museum is to honor Ella Elizabeth Hise and foster an appreciation for visual arts works, exhibits, programs, and cultural partnerships that celebrate southern Illinois and surrounding region.
