ARTHIST 704 Tours Growing Power

In keeping with the spirit of Robert Rauschenberg’s environmental advocacy and to mark the conclusion of the exhibition Global Matters: Rauschenberg Print Media 1968-1975, graduate students in Associate Professor Richard Leson’s ARTHIST 704: Introduction to Art Museum Studies II, the department’s biennial colloquium on Art Museum Studies, visited Growing Power in west Milwaukee.  The seminar is grateful to Growing Power Director Karen Parker for facilitating the visit.
