JMKAC: Regional Responses to the Art Preserve

Regional Responses to the Art Preserve
June 17–October 29, 2023
In the summer of 2022, the Arts Center invited Wisconsin-based artists and Arts Center members to submit proposals for work in any medium that makes tangible the feelings of wonder, curiosity, and exploration awakened by the collection of artist-built environments on the first floor of the Art Preserve.

This exhibition includes five responses to the work of Mary Nohl, Eugene von Bruenchenhein, Levi Fisher Ames, and James Tellen by artists Clara McElfresh, Christina Wilke-Burbach, Kristin Plucar, Sarah Rose, and Jennifer Kaiser.
