About the WUD Art Committee

The Wisconsin Union Directorate Art Committee is a student-run committee dedicated to showcasing the visual arts. The committee selects, installs, and accessibly presents local, national, and international contemporary artwork in its four gallery spaces in Memorial Union and Union South. The committee collaborates with other organizations to create ancillary programming that recontextualizes standard approaches to the visual arts.

Interested in joining our committee? Everyone is welcome! Weekly committee meetings will resume in the fall semester (check Today in the Union for the room location each week).  Email us today to learn more about WUD Art opportunities!
