The Wisconsin Union

Terrace, Memorial Union
Where you want to be this 4th of July! 5:00pm-7:00pm - Hanna Bruer, live painter Hanna Bruer is an artist currently living in Madison, WI. She earned her bachelor's degree with an emphasis in 2 Dimensional art at the University of Wisconsin Stevens Point, and her style continues to evolve. The most prominent, identifiable aspect of her work is the use of text as imagery with an abstract atmosphere. Her paintings are a series of personal essays, each inspired by something different. Their power lies in the process: the gesture and the movement, the words, and the emotion. Hanna also offers her work as performance art, creating an entire painting in front of an audience. She converts a blank canvas into an active work of art, letting the bystander experience her creative process from start to finish. Lots of trial and error, training, and learning has led her to this point, but now she feels like her art is a great representation of herself and her experiences. 9:00pm - 11:00pm - The Beat Chefs, live band The Beat Chefs are a nostalgia-heavy, nonstop dance party consisting of a live flow of 90s/early 2000s hip hop/pop/r&b classics mixed in with 80s hits!
