UW Oshkosh WPA Collection Exhibition

September 17 - October 3

"UW Oshkosh has a historic art collection of about 350 Works Progress Administration (known as WPA) pieces. WPA was created to help provide economic relief to the citizens of the U.S. who were suffering through the Great Depression. A Federal Art Project was one way to provide employment for artists on relief. The artwork now tells the history of the Depression Era." Retrieved on July 17, 2018 from UW Oshkosh Today.  Stop by and see part of our collection.

"I have been creating installations composed of insects pinned directly to a wall in repeating patterns which reference both textiles and wallpaper. When viewers enter one of my installations, they are greeted with something they think they know, that is, a patterned wallpaper which could be in anyone's home. However upon closer examination, one discovers that it is entirely made up of insects.  A tension is created by the beauty one observes in the pattern and the apprehension we feel toward insects." Retrieved on July 17, 2018, from http://www.jenniferangus.com/Bio/statement.htm
