Special Playhouse Exhibit – The Capitol at 100: Madison Artists Celebrate the Centennial
NOV 4, 2017 – JAN 14, 2018
Madison Community Foundation along with Madison Children’s Museum, Overture Center for the Arts and Wisconsin Chamber Orchestra announced new programs to celebrate the Capitol’s 100th anniversary. This is the third major grant from Madison Community Foundation’s 75th anniversary Year of Giving.
Overture Center for the Arts will use the funding for a special exhibit, The Capitol at 100: Madison Artists Celebrate the Centennial, which commemorates the 100th anniversary of the Wisconsin Capitol Building through artworks by Madison artists curated by Martha Glowacki. Done in a variety of media, artworks will range from richly detailed examinations of the building’s architecture and ornament to personal interpretations of the political history of the Capitol. The exhibition will also include an historical overview of some of the artists commissioned to create paintings, mosaics, and sculpture for the Capitol Building.
“Artists are creating new work that responds to the history, architecture or cultural symbolism of the Capitol building and surrounding grounds,” said Ted DeDee, Overture’s president and CEO. “We’re so grateful to Madison Community Foundation for helping us bring this exhibit to life and look forward to sharing more information with the community as the exhibit takes shape in the coming months.”
Monday – Thursday, 9 AM – 5:30 PM
