2014 WVA Lifetime Achievement Awards: Friday, May 16 - West Bend
This year’s recipients: Edward S. Curtis – photographer, Martha Glowacki – artist/administrator, Audrey Handler – artist, David V. Holmes – artist/educator, Mark Mulhern – artist, Della Wells – artist/activist and Ruth West - patron.
Guest speaker Carl Corey will give a talk entitled “A Sense of Place.” Hudson-based Corey takes deceivingly simple pictures of Wisconsin family-owned businesses in an exhibit now showing at MOWA. Utilizing an honest and straightforward technical approach, the subjects backstory is far from simple be it on a familial, local, national or global level. Corey’s talk will focus on what gives these businesses a sense of place within these parameters.
Support for Wisconsin Visual Art Lifetime Achievement Awards is provided by the WVA, AC Art Association and the League of Milwaukee Artists, the Museum of Wisconsin Art, the Wisconsin Academy of Sciences, Arts & Letters, and individual donors. For more information visit www.wvalaa.com
