Mary L. Nohl Suitcase Export Fund Exhibition

August 25 – October 3, 2009

Opening Reception, Friday, September 4, 6 – 9 p.m.

Curated by Bruce Knackert, Director of the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee’s INOVA gallery, and Mark Lawson, MIAD Director of Galleries, this exhibition displays works by some of the artists who received awards over the last two years from the Greater Milwaukee Foundation’s Mary L. Nohl Suitcase Export Fund. Each year, the fund helps approximately 15-20 Milwaukee-area artists take their art to venues around the world.

“The exhibition,” said Lawson, “is a good indicator of the strength and diversity of the Mary Nohl Suitcase Export Fund and the contemporary artists it supports. Through the exhibition, Milwaukeeans can view the rich variety of works exported to distant locales and venues.”
