Oshkosh Pride

Art extends beyond the classroom, beyond the paintbrush, outside of a designer’s computer and is integrated into our daily lives.

At the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh, Percent for Art Program installations, a program that ran from 1980 to 2011, continue to add beauty to campus and draw attention to artists right here in Wisconsin.
