Current Exhibits

Our current major exhibition is Dennis Bayuzick: A Printer’s Collection,” which includes materials from the collection of Dennis Bayuzick (1946-2022), painter, printmaker, letterpress printer, book artist, and long-time art professor at UW-Parkside, as well as a strong supporter of UWM Libraries’ Special Collections. Coming from a printing family, Dennis maintained a lifelong love of the printing arts and was a significant collector of wood and metal types and printing equipment, as well as hundreds of fine press publications and artists books.
