Last week over 500 artists from around the world — including from Canada, Poland, Denmark, the United Kingdom, Mexico, Italy, and New Zealand — descended on UW–Madison for the Southern Graphics Council International (SGCI) conference, “Our Shared Future,” hosted by the School of Education’s Art Department. As a result, there was a virtual explosion of art and art-making on the UW–Madison campus — and all across Madison — with open portfolio sessions, lectures, talks, demonstrations, exhibitions, and more.

Here is just a small taste of what we caught on camera.
