  • Campus-Wide Budget Panel

    Date: 3/2/2015 at 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm
    Cost: FREE
    Location: Union South - Varsity Hall. 

    What are all of these budget cuts in the news? How much is $300 million in the context of the UW System? What is "Public Authority", and how would it effect UW students, faculty, and staff? Join WUD Society & Politics and the Wisconsin Center for the Advancement of Postsecondary Education (WISCAPE) for a panel discussion followed by audience Q&A on the proposed state biennial budget, and the proposed changes in funding and structure to the University of Wisconsin System.

  • "Nocturnal Shift" by Kimberly Benson

    Date: 3/2/2015 at 7:00 am to 10:00 pm
    Cost: FREE!
    Location: Union South - Gallery 1308. 

    The artist states, "My exhibition will feature large and small paintings. I have two large paintings over 8ft wide and 7ft high. I will be making more large paintings to show for this exhibition within the next 9 months. My plan is to show three large-scale paintings, close to 8ft each and small paintings in Gallery 1308 Union South. I want Gallery 1308 specifically because it is on ground level and has the wall height to fit my large paintings, they need space around them and this gallery out of the four galleries available will suit the work best. The title of the exhibition is "Nocturnal Shift." My paintings manifest both the rot and joy of life; they challenge the viewer through overloaded jarring color and cool, slippery passages of cross cutting geometry, space and exploding viscera."

  • "Depictions" by Tyanna Buie

    Date: 3/2/2015 at 10:00 am to 8:00 pm
    Cost: FREE!
    Location: Memorial Union - Porter Butts Gallery. 

    The artist states, "See n¿ Say, broken swing sets, class-mate photos, and Easter Sunday dress rehearsal, are photo-documentation of events, objects, and people from my impermanent upbringing. These images are then transformed into a single iconic reference that emulates the function of memory, causing me to revive facts and recognize previous impressions from past events. My experiences begin to manifest into epic and exaggerated accounts that are inconsistent from one event to another, in an attempt to re-affirm my identity."

  • "required: acquisition" by Quenten Brown

    Cost: FREE!
    Location: Memorial Union - New Class of 1925 Gallery. 

    "required: acquisition" is a complex set of rules governing the artistic process. Its purpose is to
    ensure technical and thematic procedures are standard and consistent, while executed in a fair
    and impartial manner. All efforts of the responsible party are coordinated and comprehensive,
    providing stopgap solutions to artistic needs.
