Atrium – Humboldt Park School: Decline of the Honeybee | Environmental Impact

This collaborative work was created by students from Humboldt Park School as a part of RedLine Milwaukee’s Published Program. Students studying the environmental and social impact of the disappearance of the honey bee, visited Growing Power and RedLine over 5 field trips themed on this topic. During four visits to RedLine they created this silkscreen multi media piece to reinforce the schools curriculum and raise social awareness of the mysterious affliction of Colony Collapse Disorder.

Help the Honey Bee | Seed Pouches:

You can help fight the decline of the honey bee by taking one of the seed packets in the atrium to plant were you live. By providing wild flowers for bees, you can help insure their survival.

Kate Brandt Pink – Opening Reception Tomorrow at 5pm!

March 5 – April 2
Opening Reception: Friday, March 5, 5-8pm
Panel Discussion with Kate Brandt, Jennifer Johung, Heather Warren-Crow: Friday, March 12th, 5pm

In 1960, neo-Dada artist Yves Klein made a splash at an exhibition by using nude female models as living paintbrushes, making work with his signature color, International Klein Blue. UWM artist Kate Brandt comments on, confronts, and even exorcises the ghost of this “legendary” artist with a group exhibition of visual performance artists all of whom use her self selected shade of pink. In their work, these contemporary artists address ideas of gender, power roles, race, fame, class issues and more in a variety of mediums, including live performances (at the opening reception), photography, sculpture, video, and painting.

Artists include: Kate Gilmore, Ryan Trecartin, Franko B, Stuart Semple, Heather Warren-Crow, Kate Brandt, Kimberly Brandt, Cassandra Smith, A. Bill Miller, Emily Walley, Kristen Olsen, Naomi Shersty, Sarah Holden, Anna Helgeson, Richard Mutz, and many others.

***Heather Warren-Crow invites viewers to participate in her work by documenting her opening night performance using cell phone cameras. Please make her dream come true by posting a short video to YouTube and emailing the link to agallery@uwm.edu

Your video will become part of a playlist that will be exhibited at the Union Art Gallery.

Flora/Fauna – Work by Kako Ueda and Roxanne Jackson

Here are images of the artworks in the show.

Roxanne Jackson

Kako Ueda:

Flora/Fauna Opens this Friday (29th) at 5pm!

Welcome all to the Spring 2010 semester.  We would like to start the semester off right with an intensely intricate, brutal, and beautiful exhibit: Flora/Fauna


Flora/Fauna
Work by Kako Ueda and Roxanne Jackson
January 29-February 26, 2010

Opening reception: Friday, January 29, 5-8pm
Gallery talk with artists: 4pm

Kako Ueda and Roxanne Jackson focus on physical nature and human nature in abstract and inventive ways.  They share an interest in dualities, such as nature and culture, light and dark. In their work, the natural world is intricate, fascinating, grotesque, frightening – something to be drawn deeply into and sometimes shocked by.

New York artist Kako Ueda constructs her work from intricate hand-cut paper which references, in part, paper cutting from Japan where she was born. Minneapolis-based Roxanne Jackson works three-dimensionally with clay to form large compositions of human/animal hybrids.
