Chalk Talk gets statewide recognition
That's the simple concept behind "Chalk Talk," the ongoing community art exhibition that's now getting statewide recognition. Inspired by the documentary photography of Minneapolis artist Wing Young Huie and brought to the University of Wisconsin-Parkside by Gallery Director and Exhibit Curator Patricia Briggs, Chalk Talk is featured in the latest edition of "Wisconsin People & Ideas," the magazine of the Wisconsin Academy of Science, Arts, and Letters.
Dean of the College of Arts and Humanities Dean Yohnk said the article, titled "Chalk Talk Kenosha: Generating Community Dialogue Through Photography," reveals "our mission in action." He praised Briggs "for bringing the project to the campus and community," encouraging the campus to share the article with others and to use it as an example of the college and university living its mission and goals in the community.The article is now available online.
