Meehan -- whose work is featured in an exhibition at DePauw's Emison Art Center -- was the subject of the CBS affiliate's "Indiana's Own" segment, which aired during this evening's newscast. The retrospective of Meehan's art showcases, in the words of reporter Ray Rice, "sixty-one creations spread across 26 years."

"I think to be honored with the option of having a one person show" is very humbling, Professor Meehan tells WISH's Rice, who asks how one gets asked to be featured in a retrospective. cbs logo.jpg"Well, you beg a lot," Meehan quips. He adds, 'It's kind of a nice gesture."

"Bill Meehan is an artist and a teacher, who is as colorful and joyous as his brush on canvas," states Rice.

The retrospective continues through May 5.
