WUD Art is thrilled to present "Creative Power", VSA Wisconsin’s Traveling Exhibition. This will be the first exhibition to be displayed at the newly renovated Porter Butts Gallery in Memorial Union. As VSA Wisconsin states, "Creative Power" is "a lively and original art exhibition, comprised of a total of 30 award-winning works of art by Wisconsin artists with disabilities. The exhibition offers a unique glimpse of the often under-recognized creative talents of people with disabilities. These objects of beauty and value are imbued with powerful meaning and reflect the distinctive journey of each artist. The exhibition includes popular Madison artists as well as established, emerging, and youth artists from across the state." Please join us for the opening reception of "Creative Power" on Friday, December 8th at the Porter Butts Gallery in Memorial Union, 6-8pm. This will be a joint opening with the "Tropicalia" exhibition by Ben Orozco, located in the Class of 1925 Gallery. Light refreshments will be served. "Creative Power" by VSA Wisconsin will be showing from December 8th, 2017 through February 2nd, 2018.
