This year, University of Wisconsin’s Art Department hosted Open Studio Day on Saturday, which took place from 11 a.m.-4 p.m.
The locations of all demonstrations and exhibits were split between the 6th and 7th floor of George L. Mosse Humanities as well as the Art Lofts building, according to the event’s posting.
This event allowed attendees to tour over 50 of UW–Madison’s art students’ studios. While viewing their work, guests could meet and talk with the student artists about the spaces that allow them to learn, create and hone their craft.
Along with presenting artists and art spaces throughout campus, the event hosted demonstrations in UW’s media labs. Guests are able to take self-guided tours throughout both the Humanities building and the Arts Loft location to explore the exhibits, studios and events. Attendees are able to participate in the demonstrations and purchase the art to take home with them.
This year, demonstrations were available in the papermaking, ceramics and glass labs of the Art Lofts studio. In the Humanities building, there were many creative spaces available for the public to view, such as the printmaking, metalsmithing and etching studios.
Attendees also had the opportunity to walk through many of the Art Department classrooms to see the materials used for different mediums, such as lithography, jewelry, graphic design and typography.
