Promega Art Showcase

The Current Exhibit:

Exhibit dates: September 18, 2018 - January 4, 2019

The Fall Art Showcase will feature work form 'The Queen of Willy Street', Mona Boulware Webb. Artwork from the Traveling VSA Wisconsin Exhibition will also be featured, consisting of 30 pieces of award-winning artwork by artists with disabilities from youth to adults. This exhibition offers a unique glimpse of the often under-recognized creative talents of people with disabilities and also showcases the impact all artists have in our community.

The Fall Art Showcase will continue with this year’s overall theme of celebrating Wisconsin creativity. Mona’s artwork bridges the Summer and Fall Showcases because of her integral connection with the Willy Street Fair. Webb was one of the original founders of the fair which has been in existence for the last 40 years. A special screening of the award-winning documentary ‘Gods of Beauty’ by Niels Nielsen will be shown at the opening reception. The film features raw interviews with Mona in her Wayhouse of Light studio, surrounded by her artwork.

Artists will tell the stories of their creative process and the inspiration behind their work during a symposium on Tuesday, September 18, 2018 from 3:30 - 4:30 pm, followed by a reception featuring music by Hanah Jon Taylor from 4:30 - 6:30 pm at the Promega BioPharmaceutical Technology Center, 5445 E Cheryl Parkway in Fitchburg. Both events are open to the public. A note about parking: Due to construction projects going on in the area, please plan for extra time to find parking prior to the start of the event.
