Spring 2011 Art Show

The Promega Spring Art Showcase presents “Bringing the World Back Home: 50 Years with the Peace Corps”. The showcase is pleased to host one of three exhibits celebrating the Peace Corp’s 50th anniversary.

Bringing the World Back Home exhibit honors local Peace Corps volunteers whose years of service over the past 50 years has affected thousands of lives in various parts of the world. The art objects are windows into their memories and experiences with their overseas communities, and honor the people who welcomed them so warmly into their homes. Included are carvings from Africa, textiles, pottery from Central and South America, basketry from the Pacific Islands and statements by returned Peace Corps volunteers from the Dane County region.
