The Promega Summer Art Showcase: Studying History, Designing the Future

Madison, WI USA. (June 3, 2019)

The Promega Summer Art Showcase presents ‘Studying History, Designing the Future’, featuring works inspired by The Helen Louise Allen Textile Collection in the School of Human Ecology at UW-Madison.

Originating in the study collection that Helen Louise Allen, Professor of Weaving from 1927 to 1968, amassed to teach her students about textile techniques and the global cultures that practiced them, this collection has grown to over 13,000 pieces and continues to support the curriculum across numerous disciplines. This group exhibit will demonstrate the ways that this unique resource serves as a point of inspiration for a broad range of student endeavors and will include students' creative responses to designs and techniques found in the Textile Collection.

Artists will tell the stories of their creative process and the inspiration behind their work during a symposium on Tuesday, June 11, 2019 from 3:30 - 4:30 pm, followed by an opening reception from 4:30 - 6:30 pm at the Promega BioPharmaceutical Technology Center, 5445 E Cheryl Parkway in Fitchburg. Both events are open to the public.

A note about parking: Due to construction projects going on in the area, please plan for extra time to find parking prior to the start of the event.

The Summer Art Showcase runs from Tuesday, June 11, 2019 through September 1, 2019. The exhibit is open to the public Monday through Friday from 8:00 am – 4:00 pm and is made possible through support from Promega Corporation. The Summer Art Showcase is curated and produced by Daniel Swadener.
