Art Agency Sale

Art Agency says ‘Thank You’

The Art Agency student group thanks participating artists and the UW-Green Bay community for the wonderful support of their third biennial Art Agency Art Sale that took place Wednesday (Dec. 5). Final sales tallies include 164 pieces of art sold — hand-made by students, faculty/staff and alumni. The six-hour event raised $1,657 overall with $327 in commission to help fund Art Agency (and sister group A2Z) activities.

Art lovers stay tuned. Dates are not finalized, but Art Agency is planning for the next Art Sale to most likely be held in March or April in the window between spring break (March 18-25, 2019) and their Empty Bowls event which will take place on April 17, 2019 from 11 a.m to 3 p.m. in Phoenix Room C.

History presentations a win for Packers/UW-Green Bay

History presentations a win for Packers/UW-Green Bay

This semester, UW-Green Bay History, Democracy and Justice Studies, and Humanities students and faculty, collaborated on an exciting project to document the history of the Green Bay Packers as the franchise celebrates 100 years. The students presented their findings at a public presentation at the Lambeau Field Atrium, Wednesday, Dec. 5, 2018 from 5 to 7 p.m.

Student projects covered a wide terrain of Packers history. One project created by Grant Fischer, Kilian Carlson, Jamie Stankevitz, Rich Rehberg and Fisher Stathes, for example, explains how the Packers revolutionized professional football by deepening the use of the forward pass. Another, developed by Madeline Cichoki, Gwen Drumheller, Joseph Karrmann, Rachel Scray and Emily Bork, draw on the Lyle Lahey cartoon collection to show how the Packers were integral in how Green Bay residents understood national politics.

“I am very proud of our students who gave 10 articulately delivered presentations of their Green Bay Packers projects,” said Prof. Heidi Sherman. “Can you imagine being a first-semester freshman and having to present for 10 minutes at Lambeau field to 75 people and several local reporters and TV stations? Amazing!”
