Mural in Ian’s - Helen Hawley

The Wisconsin State Journal has published an article featuring UW Madison’s own graduate student Helen Hawley. 

“Right now, I’m really fixated on what it’s been like to be here,” said Hawley, a UW-Madison graduate student in printmaking, who was selected by Ian’s Pizza to create an original work on a 160-square-foot wall in its new Downtown restaurant.

The Sketchbook Project is open for 2013! Register now to receive your sketchbook and info card for $25. Once you’re done, mail the book back in and it will become a part of the Brooklyn Art Library.  The book will tour the country in a traveling show which will stop in Austin, TX, Chicago, IL, San Francisco, CA, Portland, OR, and other great stops along the way! You can also have your book digitized for an extra $30. It’s a great way to not only a great and fun way to keep (and complete) a sketchbook, but also have others see your work!

STUDENT LOAN DEBT TOPS 1 TRILLION DOLLARS on April 25th

Are you one of the millions with student loan debt? Then join people all over the U.S. to mark this day…after all, we’ve earned it with enough money in loans to surpass national credit card debt!

SIGN THE WALL OF DEBT!

WHEN: Wednesday, April 25th, 11am-2pm

WHERE: Library Mall, UW-Madison Campus

WHAT: Write your name, message, and amount of debt on the Wall. We’ll be handing out art supplies and information all afternoon during passing time, and in Library Mall. Please encourage your friends, students, and co-workers to pass through Library Mall too.

WHY: The higher education system in the United States is in crisis. College tuition has gone up more than 400% since the 1980′s, an increase that has far outpaced inflation or household income. Corporations and unaccountable administrators are turning colleges and universities from sites of higher education into debt factories for Wall Street speculators. Tuition increases year after year, forcing students to choose between their education and crushing debt. As a college education becomes more important, it becomes less and less affordable.

As the students, teachers, and researchers of higher education, we understand the real reasons we’re on campus. And as workers, we understand the importance of leaving college with skills and knowledge, not with massive debt. We demand an affordable education and a better future! Join us to convey this message to the nation!
