Madison art alert


Email from Robert Cozzolino

This advice addressed to Roberta, who’s now in Milwaukee, could apply to anyone within spitting distance of Madison. I know if she could possibly get there, she’d be there in a minute–Libby:

I noticed that Roberta is in the Midwest — in the great state of Wisconsin. I encourage you to borrow a car, a friend with a car, a family member with a car, or take the Badger bus to Madison and the Chazen Museum of Art (formerly the Elvehjem — they recently received a $20 Million gift to support their expansion and voila, a name change) to see the other big ‘ol show I have on display there. That one is accompanied by a catalogue… (image off the cover of the catalog is by John Wilde, American, b. 1919, “Karl Priebe, Gertrude Abercrombie, Dudley Huppler, Marshall Glasier, Sylvia Fein, A Friend, Arnold Dadian, and Myself, 1966,” Oil on panel, 8 x 12 inches).

Unfortunately, it will not be traveling so you can only see it there. Here’s a link to the exhibition [With Friends: Six Magic Realists 1940-1965, which runs to Sept. 18] and then a link to said catalogue.

I know from my own travels to see family and friends in the Midwest that it is very hard to try and squeeze in everything and everyone you’d like to see — but I thought I’d just alert you to the show in case you have a chance to drop in on Madison. You can go get Babcock Hall ice cream at the Union and look out at the lake afterward!
