May 2, 2022 @ 8 PM – Dollar Gentle Cycle exhibition opening at the Mobile Design Box (1001 West Historic Mitchell Street)
‘Dollar Gentle Cycle’ (DGC) is a pop-up exhibition that gently cycles the School of Architecture and Urban Planning (SARUP) at the University of Wisconsin Milwaukee’s (UWM) resources through Dollar General Corporation (DG) in a vacant retail space on Milwaukee’s Historic Mitchell Street – where the two organizations are neighbors – to understand the extent to which both institutions push resources back into the communities they purport to serve.
As the only school of architecture in Wisconsin and the foremost dollar store in the region, SARUP and DG play critical roles in influencing large-scale commercial practices and mom-and-pop-corner-shop small-scale domestic realities across the Midwestern United States. Exhibition organizers Lindsey Krug and Sarah Aziz – SARUP’s 2020-2021 Fitzhugh Scott Fellows – polled workers from every DG store in Wisconsin and consolidated donation lists from community support groups on Mitchell Street and around Milwaukee to glean insights into the type of dollar store items that facilitate civic life in the city. Krug and Aziz used resources from SARUP to purchase each of the requested items in bulk from Dollar General. The products are on display in a faux Dollar General in a storefront leased by SARUP’s Mobile Design Box and adjacent to Dollar General store #19014, and will be available for collection by the DG workers and organizations Krug and Aziz consulted.
May 10, 2022 @ 12PM – ICL lecture by Sarah McKinley – virtual only
In order to address wealth inequality, we need understand and talk about wealth extraction from our communities. How do we root wealth locally so that it recirculates for the benefit of people, planet, and place? Community wealth building is the way that we do that and offers systemic and transformative solutions that can build a more sustainable and just economy from the local up
May 13, 2022 @ 9AM to 6 PM – SUPERjury Event in the SARUP gallery and Marcus Commons
Guest Critics: Bob Somol, Jenny Wu, and Ersela Kripa
SUPERjury is a day-long review and celebration of the most provocative undergraduate and graduate projects in the school. With projects nominated for consideration by both students and faculty, the goal of SUPERjury is to foster self-reflection and stimulate a conversation about the state of architecture within the school and also how our work relates to contemporary issues in practice and the world. Students who are selected to participate in the review are recognized with honors and cash prizes. It’s a very significant event for the School of Architecture & Urban Planning.
