Badger Talks LIVE: Behind the Scenes Tour at the Chazen!

May 8, 2020 @ 1:30 pm - 2:15 pm

Get a behind the scenes peek of the magnificent Chazen Museum of Art! (www.chazen.wisc.edu/) Join Chief Curator Katherine Alcauskas for a special tour of the Museum’s UW Faculty Exhibition 2020 while the museum is closed to the public. A tradition since the museum opened and in celebration of the Chazen’s 50th anniversary in 2020, the exhibition features artwork from departments across the UW-Madison campus that utilize art-making in teaching and research. Projects explore relationships between the artist’s own work and specific art works in the museum’s collection, or the artist’s own work and the museum’s public spaces and architecture.

Katherine received an M.A. in art history from Williams College, and has held curatorial positions at the Museum of Modern Art, Yale University Art Gallery and the Ruth and Elmer Wellin Museum of Art at Hamilton College. Her background in modern and contemporary works on paper is well suited to the Chazen, which is a repository for the renowned printmaking studio Tandem Press.

We are pleased to introduce Badger Talks LIVE…. a new Facebook Live series featuring UW– Madison faculty and staff experts on a variety of interesting, helpful and fun topics intended to help you cope and stay engaged during these challenging times.
