Species & Specimens Description
Species & Specimens brings together the work of eleven artists spanning several generations of faculty and alumni of the UWM Ceramics program. Their work comments on human interaction with the natural environment, using strategies from installation to small intimate objects. The Villa Terrace site and its unique interface with the urban and natural environment, its formal gardens and Lake Michigan, provides a counterpoint for multiple viewpoints the invited artists bring to the exhibition theme.
