An urban light sculpture designed by UW-Madison alumna Lyn Godley was recently installed in Philadelphia. The sculpture, through a partnership with the City of Philadelphia’s Public Art Program, was installed on the façade of the SugarHouse Casino garage facing Delaware Avenue. The beautiful, colorful display spans 290 feet wide and 60 feet high. The artwork is composed of a series of light boxes and façade lighting that change colors during the day and throughout the night to reflect similar patterns in the flow of the Delaware River. Godley earned her Master of Fine Arts degree from the School of Education’s Art Department in 1980.

The Wisconsin State Journal recently profiled former UW-Madison Professor Frances Myers and her printmaking work. The report by Gayle Worland begins: “Frances Myers was a perfect match for printmaking: hard-working, innovative, assertive, complex. But the artist and retired UW-Madison art professor, who died unexpectedly in December 2014 of a stroke at age 78, was also known for other attributes. Kindness. A sense of spirituality. An ability to find depth in the commonplace.” An exhibition of Myers’ work will be on view at the Madison Museum of Contemporary Art until Oct. 9.
