  • Do you know who's land you are occupying? UW Madison is located on ancestral Ho Chunk land that has been called Teejop (day-JOPE) since time immemorial. November is Native American Heritage Month, so it is the perfect opportunity to learn more about the 12 First Nations of Wisconsin as well as nations across the country. One of the best ways to engage with this subject is through personal stories and history that can be found in Indigenous artist's work. The Wisconsin Triennial at @mmocamadison currently includes work from 3 Native @uw_artdept faculty members, Tom Jones @tom_jones_cax_shep_ska, Emily Arthur @darkhorsepress, and John Hitchcock @hybridpress.

  • This semester we've been super excited to host the Zine Library by Taylor Rushing, 2019 MFA @UW_ARTdept. Taylor's hand-carved chest provides a sweet home for his collection of ~200 zines collected since middle school. Zines are the scrappy DIY cousins of artists' books, one of the art library's major collecting areas. While both art forms are dynamic vehicles for expressing ideas in print, zines emphasize accessibility and counter-culture--anyone can make a zine! Come visit the Zine Library and then join us tomorrow, Saturday 11/9 from 11-1 for our first zine-making workshop! @twrushing #artlibrary #zines #woodworking #DIY @seliasalzsiederart @jenniebeee @sleeplesstransgressor @uwmadlibraries
