It’s that time of year again: There’s a new selection of art from the Wisconsin Regional Art Program (WRAP) on display in Ag Hall’s main foyer. It’s the college’s tenth annual WRAP exhibition.

The program, which was founded in CALS in 1940, helps Wisconsin’s nonprofessional artists develop their creative abilities. John Steuart Curry, an American Regionalist artist who served as artist-in-residence at CALS from 1936-46, served as the program’s first mentor during his time at CALS. Read more about the program here.

This year’s Ag Hall foyer exhibition features:

  • “Amazing” by Shirley Diedrich
  • “Rhythm In Blues” by Kaci Koltz
  • “Woven in Our Cloth” by Jill Jensen
  • “Student Backyards, Madison No. 2” by Chuck Bauer
  • “Private Thoughts” by Meredith Dragovich
  • “Big Blue” by Pam Veitenheimer
  • “Egnis Droid” by Gerald Podraza
  • “Wormhole” by Candice Haugdahl
  • “Winter Hope” by Jeanne Flickinger

Facing south, artists and work are listed in order from left to right.

Three other WRAP pieces are hanging elsewhere in Ag Hall. “Hydrangeas” by Patricia Leathers is located in the Dean’s office, “Wisconsin Wreckage: The Walker Winter 2010-2018” by William R. Schuele is the Academic Affairs office, while “Relativity” by Nancy Neider can be found in the External Relations office.
