Where's Art? with Annie Dugan: artist voices and celebrating public television

Themes and Styles in Soviet Arts

Carol Veldman Rudie  presents a lecture about Soviet era art, when artistic methods and topics were employed to shape the Soviet citizen.

 Artists experimented with these issues and forms to tell another story about their cultural environment. Veldman Rudie shares how these different streams provided a nuanced picture of artistic conflicts and visual interactions that were part of this period of art.

This is the first lecture from a series of four topics that Veldman Rudie will present at the museum.

Kip Praslowicz artist talk and closing

Did you miss telling Kip what you thought of his work? Or maybe you thought you wanted to put your name in for a perogi? This is your chance! A closing reception and artist talk for his exhibition "Everyday Mayhem" at the Kruk gallery.

Kathy McTavish Artist Talk
Kathy McTavish will be discussing the tapestry of mediums and concepts used to communicate her particular concerns and interests as an artist. Among other things: queer identity, ecological collapse, the creativity and inventiveness of the human mind, relationship between humans and technology, the future of the things we create (artificial intelligence).


For the 2020 installation of WTF!, we are seeking submissions in a wide range of media from traditional media such as painting, printmaking, drawing, and sculpture to quilting, clothing, photography, embroidery, installation, illustration, graphic design, and protest materials, that explore the idea of dismantling systems of oppression .

In keeping with the history of WTF!, artworks that center feminist concepts are welcome. However, this year’s exhibition seeks to cast a wider net by specifically highlighting works that address the many ways that various and/or intersecting power systems work to dehumanize and erase traditionally marginalized individuals and communities.   

WTF! 2020 seeks to create a space for centering and inviting dialogue around the concepts of justice, presence, and power.

The Transformative Power of Public Television Art Show

Several local artists will have their artwork on display. Their inspiration drawn from any of WDSE•WRPT’s four channels and from any of the programs that have been featured throughout the history of the station.

One of the best parts of her job includes "paying it forward" by mentoring upcoming journalists and broadcasters on the student news team that helps produce Northland Morning. She also loves introducing the different people she meets in her job to one another, helping to forge new "community connections" and partnerships.Lisa has amassed a book collection weighing over two tons, and she enjoys reading, photography, volunteering with Animal Allies Humane Society and fantasizing about farmland.
