Global Matters: Rauschenberg Print Media 1968-1975 opened in the UWM Art History Gallery on Earth Day, Wednesday, April 22, 2015. Graduate student in Associate Professor Richard Leson’s ARTHIST 704: Introduction to Art Museum Studies designed and curated the exhibition.  Students from the Education and Programming group gave a gallery talk during the opening reception.  The exhibition used prints from the UWM Art Collection donated by Virginia and Thomas Maher and Emile H.
