Emmons, Detweiler, Stehlik make Wisconsin Triennial
Have there ever been more Green Bay artists chosen for inclusion in the prestigious “Wisconsin Triennial”? Class of 2010 exhibitors include three from UW-Green Bay — Prof. Carol Emmons, Associate Prof. Sarah Detweiler and Assistant Prof. Alison Stehlik — representing a solid cross-section of the Arts and Visual Design faculty.
The Madison Museum of Contemporary Art selected only 44 artists from among nearly 500 applicants. Emmons will show an installation; Detweiler, photography; and Stehlik, ceramic installation. Pieces in the Triennial — the twelfth such survey of artists living and working in the state — will be on display at the Museum’s galleries in Madison May 22 through Aug. 15.

They’ll talk about their works in the show; how living in Green Bay has shaped their creative approach, subject matter, and other artistic choices; and their roles in the community as artists and teachers. We’ll have more details closer to the date.
