As part of a new direction for the ongoing exhibition collection at the Milwaukee Institute of Art & Design, president Robert Rindler is pleased to announce that MIAD will inaugurate in January 2006 an annual exhibition program entitled "Culture in Transition."

The program will focus on the diverse aspects of our rapidly changing global culture and on such themes as traditional ideas reinterpreted in contemporary forms, digital media’s impact on visual arts and design, and sub-cultures and their relationship to the dominant culture.

The inaugural program for 2006 is a three-part series of exhibitions exploring themes of "Diaspora and the Search for Resolution." It runs from January 17 – March 25, 2006, and will be held in MIAD’s Frederick Layton Gallery, 273. E. Erie St. Gallery hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily, Tuesday through Saturday, except during school holidays. Admission is free.
