The Nut Factory, which houses the studios of several Milwaukee artists, opens its doors for a one-night-only event on Saturday, February 27, showcasing artist’s studios and several guest exhibitions.

The Nut Factory Open House is Saturday, February 27, 6 – 11 p.m., 3720 Fratney Street.

The Riverwest studio hosts The Swim Team’s—MIAD’s student run curatorial collective—first show of the spring semester, FOMO. FOMO, or the ‘fear of missing out,’ relates to anxiety over missing out on an interesting event or experience.

The content of the exhibition is being kept under wraps, but Sarah Sutterfield ’17 (ISA), The Swim Team’s lead coordinator, recommends bringing a smartphone fully charged.

Also at the Nut Factory is work from Kim Miller’s Studio Principles New Genre class, which embraces the ‘new’ in artmaking since the development of the reproducible photograph.  Students explore performance art, video, audio, social practice, digital practices, time-based forms and more.
Considered one of the principles of New Genre, time is the focus of this project with students creating a video that addresses time in some way. Emphasis is placed upon creating experiences between the artist and audience.

Also at the Nut Factory, MIAD faculty members Shana McCaw and Brent Budsberg, and MIAD alumnus Todd Mrozinski ’97 open their studios to the public.
