Wisconsin Without Borders: A Global Initiative
Celebrating and recognizing globally-engaged scholarship and reflection at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
June 5 – August 25, 2017 | Monday-Friday 10:00 am-4:30 pm, Nancy Nicholas Hall
As a part of the University of Wisconsin-Madison’s 4W Initiative, students and faculty members from the Design Studies program in the School of Human Ecology have partnered with traditional artisans around the world developing coordinated microenterprises projects. Materials and color palettes have been coordinated in order that products are globally interchangeable from one culture to another while still honoring their traditional origins. This exhibition highlights products developed in partnership with artisans in Mexico, Kenya, and India.
