"Generate: An Exhibition of Work by MIAD Alumni" marks the first of a new series of MIAD-hosted alumni exhibitions to be held at various locations around Milwaukee. On view July 10 â€“ July 29 at 2375 S. Howell Avenue and curated by alumna and former Armoury Gallery owner Cassandra Smith ’06, "Generate" represents alumni from many disciplines who have continued a strong studio practice since graduating.
"This is the first in a planned series of off-campus exhibitions featuring alumni work," said Melissa Dorn Richards ’96, MIAD’s Director of Cultural & Alumni Relations, who conceived the series. "Each exhibition will be curated by an alumnus and highlight contemporary work representing the breadth of MIAD’s majors and the creativity of its graduates. We are excited both to bring this new series to the community and to have Cassandra as our first curator."
