Folk Art Donors Visit the UWM Art History Gallery

On Tuesday, December 16, 2014, Linda Brazeau (Director, UWM Art Collection and Galleries), Christa Story (Curator, UWM Art Collection), and Katherine Murrell (Art History Lecturer) welcomed UWM Art Collection donors Jim and Beth Arient and Bob Vogele to the UWM Art History Gallery to see Extraordinary and Ordinary: Folk Art from the UWM Art Collection.  The Arients and Vogeles donated multiple pieces of folk art to the UWM Art Collection in the early 1990s.  This was their first time to the gallery since their donation and they had a great time sharing their memories of collecting first-hand from numerous artists represented in the show.
