Rennie’s Corner pop-up store launches with “Badger Red” products – Oct. 8

Screen Shot 2015-10-01 at 3.55.24 PMIn partnership with the School of Human Ecology and the Wisconsin Union, CALS is opening a pop-up retail store called Rennie’s Corner in the Discovery Building’s Town Center.

Following an art gallery model, Rennie’s Corner offers a selection of products developed by alumni, students, faculty and staff curated around a central theme. Emphasizing the stories behind the products, Rennie’s Corner also honors Oscar Rennebohm, the pharmacist, statesman and master storyteller who put the original Rennie’s on this corner.

The first installation focuses on the theme “Badger Red.” All of the stories and products on display in the store during October 2015 reflect this Wisconsin Idea-inspired theme.

This store “exhibit” runs from October 8-October 31, Thursday-Saturday, 11 a.m.-6 p.m. Check out the complete list of storytellers, vendors and events.
