For the past three years I have been working on a project called the Midwest Artist Studios Project (MAS), which aims to connect art education with Midwest contemporary artists through a series of studio visits, curriculum development, and opportunities for educator outreach.
Since 2014, my team and I have traveled to every state in the Midwest, drove 5800+ miles, visited 18 cities/towns, and interviewed 24 artists resulting in a yearly volume along with a workbook with curriculum created based on each artist's practice.
On March 10 from 5-9pm WPCA will be hosting a reception for these artists.
The MAS Group Show will feature artwork by 15 MAS participating artists between 2014-2016. The artists are Jason Ackman, Jessica Anderson, Emmy Lingscheit from Illinois; Joshua Wilichowski from Minnesota; Lori Elliott-Bartle, Jody Boyer, Rachel Mindrup from Nebraska; Karri Dieken from North Dakota; Jenniffer Omaitz from Ohio; Jane Ryder from Iowa; Larry Thomas from Kansas; Suzanne Torres, Todd Mrozinski, Josie Osborne, and Paula Schulze from Wisconsin.
Walker's Point Center for the Arts is located at 839 S. 5th Street in Milwaukee.
