CANCELED: "Them" Exhibit visit to UW-Parkside


Given the present public health crisis due to COVID-19, we've made the unfortunate but necessary decision to cancel the "Them" exhibit and related campus activities at this time. Throughout the planning process we’ve been encouraged by the overwhelming interest and support from the Parkside campus and the community. We hope to reschedule this exhibit within the next few years, pending exhibit and gallery availability. Thank you for your support!
