CAMPUS ART IN THE LIMELIGHT

HIGHLIGHTS FROM ACROSS CAMPUS

Berit Ness, in part with Daniel Einstein, is responsible for a newly launched UW–Madison website which seeks to fill a niche by giving students, staff and visitors digital access to information about and images of the public art they can see across campus. The project was actually initiated by a former faculty member of the Art History department, Lauren Kroiz. The website highlights 20 pieces of UW–Madison public art that exist outside of a traditional gallery setting — each accompanied by a visual description, photographs taken from multiple angles, information about the artist and directions to the artwork’s location.  “We were really thoughtful about how we wanted to present information,” says Berit Ness, the graduate student involved with the project. “We wanted to put together a highlight tour so that it is very approachable to both incoming visitors on campus but also to the university community as a whole.”  http://www.publicart.wisc.edu/
