  • “The Aesthetic Shape of History” explores viewing Indian manuscripts and archival spaces as art rather than content. This exhibit aims to provide insights into how the aesthetic forms used to present critical history and culture can be visually striking. It also
    shows how physical archives, which are placed in meaningful spaces, are gradually being replaced by digital means.
  • Anthony Cerulli, a Professor of South Asian Studies at UW–Madison and historian of South Asian religions and medicines, began his photo-ethnographic art project, Manuscriptistan, in 2003. His work was officially recognized in 2015 with a Guggenheim Fellowship.

The Story of Roberta Avonn Fiskum

Donors: Robert and Yvonne Fiskum

Whether it was pottery, handwork, or graphic design, art played a large part in Roberta’s life, finally culminating with a graphic arts degree from the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater. At the time of her death, Roberta was an organist at Fontana Church, playing her last concert on July 4, 1993. A scholarship in the field of art and design has been established in her memory. Her mentor, UW-Whitewater art professor Amy Arntson, described Roberta as “an extremely creative, talented individual whose work showed a special sensitivity and intelligence.” It was the lifetime goal of Roberta to own an art gallery; therefore, her parents Robert and Yvonne Fiskum have funded this student art gallery in her memory.
