A new selection of art from the Wisconsin Regional Art Program (WRAP) is now on display in Ag Hall’s main foyer. After several years without the display, Ally McCann, administrative assistant, and Doug Sabatke, director of facilities, toured the state WRAP exhibit at the Pyle Center in August and chose ten pieces to display in Ag Hall. Nine pieces are the lobby, and one is in Dean Gillaspy’s office. A sign will be hung in the rotunda with titles and names shortly.
This year’s Ag Hall exhibition features:
- “A Midsummer’s Night Dreaming” by David McKenzie
- “Forest Glow” by Vina Yang
- “Portrait of Alonzo” by Jackelyn Montano
- “Cascading” by Phyllis Schuit
- “Mylee” by Isabella Seyfferth
- “Hawk Encounter” by Jan Wood
- “Barcarolle” by Kimberly Strittmater
- “Eye, Too” by Beatie Gmeiner
- “Sea of Greens” by Janet Nelson
- “Clearing” by Mary Schlais (located in the Dean’s Office)
WRAP was founded in CALS in 1940 and 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.
