The UWM Archives’ summer exhibit is a display of materials from the papers of Charlotte Partridge and Miriam Frink, two women who shared their professional and personal lives for more than 50 years. They founded the Layton School of Art in Milwaukee and from there worked to advance the arts locally and nationally, including rekindling international interest in Franklin Lloyd Wright’s work, selecting local artists and projects for FDR’s New Deal arts programs, and much more.
