Urban Bubble Gallery Reception
Mon, Jan 13
Rotunda Lobby: Free
Join us for a reception with the artists of the Urban Bubble show in Rotunda Lobby MON, JAN 13, 6-8 PM!
Living in and on the Urban Bubble is precarious at best. Being young, gifted and black does not equate with being understood and encouraged by the systems that be. Moving through the turmoil, we, as artists, seek to define ourselves and project our realities into the future, owning our narratives and images.
The Bubbler, in collaboration with Faisal Abdu’Allah and MMSD’s Foundations Central graduation recovery program located at the Urban League of Greater Madison, presents this art exhibition by Madison youth. Over a nine-week course held in the Bubbler Room at Central Library, URBAN BUBBLE is the culmination of conversations and productions that celebrated identity, excellence and the powers within each individual.
Faculty and staff: Faisal Abdu’Allah (UW Madison), Rob Dz (Bubbler), Jesse Vieau (Bubbler), Jennifer Tomlinson (MMSD), Kevin Evanco (MMSD), Gordon Heingartner (MMSD), Alison Stauffacher (MMSD).
Participating organizations: Fauhaus -Faisal Abdu’Allah / UW Community Arts Collaboratory / Madison Public Library / Bubbler / Dane Arts / Scooter Software / Leila & Mickey Straus Family Foundation / Epic
